The Diploma of Information Technology (UniLink) (8 months) provides a direct pathway to second-year university. The units are similar to those in first year of a bachelor degree, but the classroom environment is different. Classes are smaller and students will have more individual attention from their teachers to help them adjust to university.
After completion of the chosen bachelor degree, graduates may find employment in database administration, electronic publishing, information architecture, internet systems development, online entertainment, multimedia application design, project management, software development, systems analysis, web design and more.
The Diploma of Information Technology (UniLink) (8 months) is designed as a high quality transitional education program that aims to prepare students for successful Higher Education studies. The program consists of eight units over two fourteen week teaching periods and is designed to provide students with a sound understanding of the basic IT principles to enable them to learn valuable Information Technology skills which can be used later in their life. Students will be exposed to subjects from each of the core Information Technology disciplines as well as Communication for Information Technology.
