They are usually run over 2 semesters (some institutions over 3 semesters) and they typically start in February/March of each year. Postgraduate courses (i.e. Master or Graduate Diplomas) are typically 1 to 2 years in length. They are also usually 2 or 3 semesters each year and starting in February/March each year. Doctoral (PhD) courses are typically 3 years in length (plus 1 year for review). There is typically no formal semesters, and start dates are usually negotiated with the PhD supervisor.
Foundation Studies and Diploma Studies
If you don’t meet academic requirements, we can assist you with enrolling into a Foundation Course. This is a preparatory course that will give you the skills you need to enter an undergraduate course at a university or higher education institution and complete your studies in Australia. We can often apply for a provisional place with a university in conjunction with the foundation studies. Please contact us for more detail.
Alternatively, we can assist you with enrolment into a Diploma course. There are many colleges and institutions that offer Diploma courses. Once you complete the Diploma course, you can gain direct entry into year two of the Universities’ year two undergraduate course. Please contact us for more detail.
For example, an alternate pathway to applying for a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy undergraduate degree is first having completed Year 12 in Australia (or equivalent in your country), you can apply for a Diploma of Health Sciences (Stage 2) in one of these colleges. Once you completed the Diploma, you can gain direct entry into Year 2 of the Bachelor of science (Physiotherapy) course. Please contact us for more detail.
