WHAT YOU’LL BE STUDYING

Content Creation-1

 

Bachelor Degree or Diploma? 

Collarts offers two qualifications within the Content Creation course, a Bachelor of Arts (Content Creation) and a Diploma of Arts (Content Creation). The Diploma is embedded within the Bachelor Degree. 

The Diploma consists of the first 2 trimesters of the 6 trimester Degree. Students may receive an offer into the Diploma or Bachelor Degree depending on their application and/or entry requirements. If students apply for, or receive an offer for the Diploma course, they may use the Diploma as a pathway into the Bachelor Degree. If they successfully pass the Diploma level qualification, they may then begin the Bachelor Degree in the 3rd trimester should they so choose.

If students apply for, or receive an offer for the Bachelor Degree, they must complete all 6 trimesters including trimesters 1 and 2, which are also considered a part of the embedded Diploma. If a student enrols into the Bachelor Degree and chooses to finish the course at the end of their 2nd trimester and they have successfully completed both trimesters, they may exit the course with the Diploma level qualification. Students enrolled in the Diploma and Degree will have classes together in the first two trimesters of their course.
