First Year Diploma programs are two semester courses that function as an alternative first year of an undergraduate degree at Charles Darwin University. The programs are for students who are close to meeting academic and English entry requirements but require some additional support for their first year of study.
Successful completion of the First Year Diploma program allows for direct entry into the second year of an undergraduate degree in Business, Accounting or IT.
CRICOS course codes:
Business Studies: 0100739 (NT), Information Technology: 0100740 (NT)
Successful completion of this program allows direct entry into the second year of the Bachelor of Business or the Bachelor of Accounting. All degree specialisations are available. Units replicate the content, delivery and assessment of equivalent degree units at CDU, along with specialised English language and academic support.
CDU Accounting courses are CPA-accredited – completion of the degree allows graduates to apply for membership of CPA Australia and the Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ).
