Higher education diplomas with UC College
If you don’t yet meet the entry requirements for the UC course you’re aiming for, UC College’s diplomas – also known as higher education diplomas – will provide you with an introduction to your chosen study area. They act as an alternative entry pathway for admission to UC undergraduate courses and prepare you for university study.
By successfully completing a diploma, you can gain some credit points towards your undergraduate degree. Many diplomas will give you entry into the second year of your UC bachelor’s degree, giving you ‘advanced standing’ for the first year (24 credit points). It’s best to check the specific details of your preferred diploma so you know how much credit you’ll receive for your undergraduate degree on completion.
