A UNSW Diploma in Business, Computer Science, Engineering or Science provides you with a fast track to success. The programs have been designed as an alternative path for international students who have just missed out on direct entry to a UNSW degree. Successfully completing the 12-month program will allow you to progress into Second Year of a UNSW bachelors degree in Business, Computer Science, Engineering or Science.

As a diploma student you will:

  • Gain direct entry to Second Year of UNSW’s undergraduate degrees in Business, Computer Science, Engineering or Science on successful completion of your program.
  • Graduate at the same time as your friends at UNSW.
  • Enjoy smaller tutorial classes and have access to additional free tutoring and consultation at no additional cost.
  • Access the same facilities and resources as First Year undergraduate students.
  • Earn two UNSW Sydney qualifications by the time you complete your degree - a diploma and a bachelors degree.
