Fast track your diploma

A concurrent diploma is a diploma qualification taken at the same time as your undergraduate degree. It usually adds a year onto your study but fast track options are available with approval to complete both your degree and the diploma in three or three-and-a-half years of full time study, or equivalent part time study.
