About this course

Entry requirements

Entry to the Graduate Diploma requires a bachelor's degree, which does not need to be in the same area of study. If you gained your qualification overseas, this will need to be assessed to ensure it is of an equivalent standard.

If English is your additional language, you are also required to meet UC's English language requirements.
