Why study the Diploma in Science?

The Diploma in Science is open to graduates of a Bachelor program in any field of study. It is a flexible program that allows students to:

  • complete additional science courses in a new area of study in order to gain additional qualifications;
  • broaden their knowledge in order to qualify for entry into honours or postgraduate programs;
  • take a mixture of courses in different areas for a range of purposes.
This Diploma is ideal for people who need to fulfill prerequisites for entry into another program, for people who are preparing to sit the GAMSAT or for teachers looking for professional development. Students enrolling in the Diploma in Science can choose to either complete a major from the course list or to complete a set of courses without a declared major.

Due to the sequential nature of some majors in which some courses require prerequisite knowledge, students may need to complete the Diploma part time over three or four semesters.

The Diploma in Science is a Commonwealth supported (HECS-Help) program.
