If you’re looking to progress your current career or enter a new one, a nationally recognised diploma will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to succeed in your industry of choice.
Diploma qualifications have been designed to expand on your knowledge of a particular vocation, as well as develop and refine higher level management skills, including elements of planning, development and problem solving.
Courses take on average 12 to 24 months to complete depending on your choice to study full or part time, and the majority do not have any pre-requisites. Select qualifications may require some prior industry knowledge or vocational experience, particularly in hands-on industries such as childcare or hospitality.
As a successful graduate, you will be able to take on a variety of tasks and responsibilities that require strong leadership and managerial abilities. Your qualification will also provide an entry pathway to further university study should you wish to pursue a degree.
Upon graduation of your diploma course, you may be eligible to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning, whereby relevant course units can be credited as part of your university degree. This may result in progressing directly into your second year of studies.
When choosing to study online, it's best to ensure your qualification is nationally accredited. This means your course provider meets the formal standards as outlined by the Australian Skills Training Authority, and meets national quality requirements for industry training. You will graduate from tertiary studies with a qualification that is recognised Australia-wide, giving you the advantage of expanding your job opportunities and increasing career prospects in your industry of choice.
