The Diploma in General Studies is a
pathway course into bachelor courses at the University of Melbourne. It allows
you to try subjects in agriculture, science, commerce and environments
and you can use it to get a really good idea about where you want to go after you
finish the Diploma. Students who go on to do further study articulate into our
undergraduate programs at the University of Melbourne, they go off to other
universities or they use it to get a job. I’m planning on going into agriculture at
Melbourne, and then hopefully into Veterinary Medicine.
I plan to move into second year of the Bachelor of Agriculture in Melbourne and when I complete that get a
job in the industry, maybe as a wool broker or stock agent.
Students can apply to the Diploma in General Studies via direct entry or through the VTAC process.
I definitely recommend the Diploma to anyone thinking about going
into a Bachelor at Melbourne. It’s just a really good opportunity for your
first year of University.
