Length of Study

Both international and domestic students can choose to study our courses full time.

Only domestic (Australian) students can choose to study our courses part time.

Short courses allow people to gain the relevant skills and experiences needed for their new career path in a short timeframe. Short courses are a great opportunity to learn new skills and improve upon already learned skills.

Employers will see value in recently learned knowledge and practical skills required for the position. Unlike university degrees, most diplomas and short courses allow people to study at their own pace and within a schedule that best suits them. They aren’t restricted to a specific tertiary timetable or calendar and it also allows them to work part-time or full-time without dealing with a hectic schedule.
