Why study the Diploma in Arts?

The Diploma in Arts is available to graduates of a Bachelor program in any field of study. Students enrolling in the Diploma are required to complete one major or two minors. It is a flexible program that allows students to complete arts courses in a new area of study in order to gain additional qualifications. Upon completion and subject to satisfactory performance and entry requirements, this program may enable students eligibility for entry into Honours, to postgraduate coursework and, via Honours, entry to research postgraduate study. The Diploma in Arts is a commonwealth supported (HECS-Help) program.
Please note that in some cases it will not be possible to complete the requirements for the Diploma in one year of full time study, and part time enrolment may be required. This is because some majors (for example, languages) require sequential study.
