Advanced diploma programs offer all of the advantages of certificates and diplomas, but with more time to undertake in-depth learning. Typically running six semesters, they usually incorporate a work placement component, offering relevant industry experience before graduation. If you want more confidence or experience for your career, or to keep your pathway options open to a degree program, an advanced diploma may be the perfect choice for you.

“Whatever you put in is what you get out of it. I had awesome teachers and I was in the lab at least three days a week and took every opportunity I could outside of class. I was blessed to learn in great facilities. We had state-of-the-art labs and machines were always working.”
