Advanced diploma graduates will receive credit for 12 bachelor degree subjects, meaning they need to complete just 12 more bachelor degree subjects in one extra year of study to graduate with a bachelor degree. Through our partnership with Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School, we also can also offer graduate pathway opportunities into the masters degree program.
