Diploma stages

Curtin College Diplomas have two stages

The Curtin College Diploma is two years in total. It has two stages: Diploma (Stage 1) and Diploma (Stage 2). Where you start will depend on your qualifications.

Students who have already completed Year 12 (or equivalent) may start with the Stage 2 Diploma, which has the same course content and structure as year one of the corresponding Curtin University undergraduate degree. Upon completion of your Diploma, you will progress directly into the second year of your Curtin University Bachelor's degree program.

Students who are not eligible for entry into the Stage 2 Diploma may complete the Stage 1 Diploma prior, which includes eight pre-university level units studied over two or three trimesters.
