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.
