The Diploma of Higher Education is a one-year course (or two years) designed to help people who may not meet the academic requirements for entry into a Bachelor degree. The Diploma consists of a combination of introductory and first-year degree subjects, designed to help students develop the necessary skills to be successful university students.
Successful completion of the Diploma will give you a recognised qualification in its own right. Graduating with the Diploma will also allow you to enter many JCU Bachelor degree programs and may give you advanced standing, or credit, for some of the subjects you successfully completed.
Students in the Diploma course will enrol in specific study plans mapped to a target degree. You can choose from a variety of majors including:
- Business Studies
- Engineering and Applied Science
- General Studies
- Information Technology
- Psychological Science
- Social Work
- Society and Culture
Take the next step in your learning journey with a JCU degree. The study you have already completed may count as credit towards a JCU degree, helping save time and expense.
If you’ve studied at TAFE or any other Vocational Education Training institution, your application process is identical to school leavers and non-school leavers. Apply through AECC Global and JCU will assess your application. Once you are accepted into your course, the enrolment team from the division you applied to will assess your suitability to gain advanced standing, so your previous study won’t go to waste.
Applying for credit for previous study or work experience can help you complete your JCU degree in a shorter timeframe and save on overall course fees.
If you have studied at another university, TAFE, or a private tertiary education provider in Australia or overseas, you may be able to transfer credit to your current degree. Use JCU credit calculator to view current articulation agreements.
Articulation arrangements are the arrangements which enable students to progress from a recognised academic program to a JCU course with admission and/or credit in a defined pathway.
Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) refers to the skills and knowledge you’ve gained through work and life experiences. We can assess your RPL and determine if you are eligible for credit.
