What will I learn?

Prepare for an IT career in an ever-changing and booming industry. The Diploma in Information Technology is an important stepping-stone to achieve your career and study goals. You’ll graduate with a formal standalone qualification plus gain credit for the first year of our Bachelor of Information Technology and transition straight into second year.

Not only does our diploma in Information Technology have lower entry requirements than our bachelor’s degree, but it will help you to develop skills needed to succeed in more advanced tertiary study.

Whether you have just finished Year 12 or finished years ago, our Diploma in Information Technology is a Commonwealth supported place (CSP-funded) and will help you achieve your goals.

We are here to support you from start to finish. We ensure smaller class sizes, offer tailored support as you transition to university study, and provide a range of student services to help you succeed.

Further study

Students who complete the Diploma in Information Technology may apply for entry into the Bachelor of Information Technology. It may also provide a pathway into a range of double degrees.
