What will I learn?

When you study a Diploma of Communication you’re opening the door to a multitude of creative possibilities. From day one, you will be learning from our highly qualified lecturers who also bring current industry knowledge in gamified, cutting-edge digital and social media communication to the learning experience.

Our small classes give you the advantage, with chances to collaborate, present and build friendships that will last. You will engage in real world assessments, which are aligned to first year UTS subjects. This means you will be joining the second year of the UTS Bachelor of Communication* with the same deep knowledge as your peers.

When you join the UTS Bachelor of Communication with 6 subjects accredited, you will have the opportunity to choose your major. Select from: Digital and Social Media, Public Communication, Media Arts and Production, Journalism, Social and Political Sciences or Creative Writing. Your UTS degree positions you for the next step in your career, with exciting and rewarding work opportunities in the ever-broadening fields of communication.

Do you want to build your English language skills while you study? Our Extended program offers the same subjects as the standard program, PLUS Academic English or Academic Communication. This is ideal if you want a confidence boost before taking the next step onto a UTS degree.
