It is important to consider all of your options so that you can choose the one that corresponds to your requirements, plans and goals best.

Diploma courses are available to students who have completed higher school. You must have completed Australian year 12 or equivalent in order to qualify for such a program. Students who have completed year 11 and have a certificate in a relevant knowledge are also eligible for taking such a course. Graduates receive an accredited award in the form of a diploma. In most cases, the award is nationally recognized. Still, it is best for prospective students to look into the award that they will receive in greater detail.

Diploma courses give you practical skills and knowledge. They prepare you for taking entry-level and mid-level positions in a wide range of industries from business and tourism to information technology and graphic design.

Diploma courses have credits which are transferable towards bachelor's degree programs. If you take such a course, you will be able to complete a degree program in a shorter period of time.

Diploma courses are available from colleges and other types of educational institutions with the same status. Students can choose a traditional form of education and study full time on campus. Part time campus based courses are readily available as well. Distance learning is also an option for many diploma students. You can choose from online and correspondence study modes.
