Overview

The Computing Diploma from Australian National University will provide you with a sound grounding in all the basic requirements for success in a degree in information technology including maths, information systems and computer science.

Computing and Information Systems fields of study at ANU were awarded 5 stars for graduate starting salaries and graduate employments.

Progression

Upon successful completion of the ANU Diploma of Computing with no more than one fail or incomplete grade, students will be eligible to enter the second year of the Bachelor of Information Technology at ANU.

If students do not achieve the required results they will need to begin at Year One and may apply for credit for courses undertaken in their Diploma.

All ANU diplomas are recognised Australian tertiary qualifications and are therefore nationally and internationally recognised and are valid to use to apply for entry to other institutions.

The Bachelor of Information Technology

Look around, Information Technology (IT) is everywhere your TV, laptop, gaming system, mobile phone, watch, music, movies and your next concert tickets. It is changing the way we live, learn, work and even socialise. If you are interested in driving this exciting revolution, within a truly globalised and fast changing industry, then the ANU Bachelor of Information Technology is for you.

If the students preferred program is not a listed degree, or major within that degree, then there is no guarantee of entry although they are still eligible to apply competitively for entry and for credit for courses undertaken within the diploma.
