The Diploma in General Studies: Your stepping-stone
The Diploma in General Studies is a sampler of the Melbourne Bachelor Degrees, providing you with the opportunity to study Science, Commerce, Agriculture or Environments. It gives you the breathing space of a year to decide what you want to do next and provides a stepping stone to a meaningful outcome – whether that is employment, or further study in a University of Melbourne degree or TAFE program.
The Diploma is aimed at both school leavers and mature-age students. It is designed to provide a pathway to reduce educational entry and financial barriers to higher education by offering flexible education in regional Victoria. The course facilitates the transition to higher education through the provision of a supportive learning environment specifically designed to develop the academic skills required for success at University.
The course framework provides students with broad study options and the opportunity to experience a range of discipline areas. Depending on subject choice and academic results, graduates may satisfy the entry requirements for a range of bachelor degrees, in Science, Commerce, Design and Agriculture.
