The Diploma is a qualification in its own right, and students can stop there if they want to. But it is also a pathway to a Bachelor degree, which means that the 8 courses undertaken can count towards another degree. Students will complete 8 courses that will establish environmental concepts that can be applied in the workplace to assist in the management of natural resources in a sustainable manner. After completing the Diploma of Science (Environment and Sustainability or Physical Sciences), students can continue their studies with the Bachelor of Science (Environment and Sustainability or Physical Sciences).
