Gain a more in-depth understanding of your scientific subject area and boost your career opportunities with a PGDipSc.
The Diploma will take you one year of full-time study during which you'll further develop your skills in laboratory work, data analysis and scientific communication. The programme can also provide a pathway into Master's study.
You'll take courses worth a total of 120 points, and with most subjects you can choose whether to include a 30-point research project.
If you want to gain advanced scientific knowledge and have a B average in your subject area, then a PGDipSc is a good option for you. Victoria also offers a number of specialist postgraduate diplomas.
If you don't have the required background for entry into these programmes, you could do a Graduate Diploma in Science instead.
