This program is suitable for students who are marginally unable to meet the entry requirements for direct admission to university. Upon completion of this award, students may gain full credit and exemption for one year of a degree course at university, but are also recognised and respected in workplaces internationally. This means that if a student interrupts their tertiary studies (in unforeseen circumstances) they can enter the workforce and return to university at a later date (degree must be completed within 10 years) without losing credit.
