Academic entry requirements for Australian and New Zealand citizens
SIBT requires you to have completed Australian year 12 (or equivalent) to qualify for entry into a Diploma program. We will look at your overall results as well as those in particular subject areas to determine the program you will be accepted in to.
If you require some additional knowledge you may be given some bridging subjects which can be completed in conjunction with your Diploma.
If you have completed Year 11 (with 3 passes), you will be eligible to study the Foundation Standard Program.
If you have completed Year 11 or equivalent, you will be eligible to study the Foundation Extended Program.
Bridging subjects for diploma programs
Bridging Subjects are offered to SIBT Diploma Australian students absolutely free... and you can still complete your Diploma in just one year!
What are bridging subjects?
Bridging subjects are available to you if you do not meet the direct entry requirements for the Diploma program. They are studied in addition to your Diploma subjects and are completed in your first semester.
Why would I need to take a bridging subject?
To be successful at the SIBT Diploma you may need some assistance in certain areas. Our Admissions team will determine this when preparing your offer and where required will communicate the need for bridging subjects within your letter of offer.
How many bridging subjects can I study and at what cost?
Students will be required to study either one or two free Bridging Subjects in their first session at SIBT. Any additional subjects will be at you own expense. The bridging subjects will cover areas such as communications skills, computer skills and mathematic skills. Students will be advised of their assigned bridging subjects at enrolment.
Can I still complete my diploma program in 12 months?
Yes! You can complete the Bridging Subject(s) at the same time as enrolling in some subjects from your Diploma. We recommend that you take a reduced study-load in your first semester (i.e. 3 subjects or less) and schedule your study across all three sessions in the calendar year. This will increase your chances of success.
