What is a Diploma of University Studies?
A diploma at university is an undergraduate qualification and is the perfect introductory degree to give you a taste of university life. A Diploma of University Studies is more detailed than a certificate but less comprehensive and faster to complete than an associate degree or bachelor degree.
At UniSQ, you can choose from eight different specialisations.
Business and Commerce – Begin your introduction to business studies and develop your English, analysis and mathematics skills. Select your courses based on your personal and career goals and choose to study marketing, accounting, economics, law or finance.
Construction – Develop your knowledge and skills in construction management, engineering and the built environment. Continue your studies and use your Diploma of University Studies qualification as a stepping-stone into UniSQ’s Bachelor of Construction (Honours).
Creative Arts – Sample Creative Arts specialisations such as Music, Theatre, Creative Media and Visual Arts courses, all while developing transferable skills in writing, mathematics and IT.
Engineering – Discover what studying engineering is like at the university education level. An Engineering specialisation within the Diploma of University Studies will enable you to strengthen your skills in problem solving, math and physics.
Indigenous Community Development – Commence your career in social services by gaining an understanding of the key issues, principles and theories that impact Indigenous communities. Choose to study a variety of courses within history, Indigenous literacies, anthropology or community welfare.
Science – A science diploma at university will introduce you to bite-size courses in a variety of fields to help you decide which science specialisation is right for you. At UniSQ you can sample four courses from a number of science areas including astronomy, biology, maths and psychology.
