You will also receive a comprehensive Student Handbook that walks you through your course. Each subject will be clearly laid out and will allow you to progress as quickly as you feel comfortable.
2. Do I have to give up my day job to do the course?
Not at all! We have available a wide range of options so that you don’t need to give up your day job and you can still complete the Diploma course in 9 months! If studying on-campus, you can choose 9 weekends (sat & sun) or 9 weekdays (mon & tues) or an evening format (every mon evening) or a midday format (every wed midday). You can even do the entire course from the comfort of your own home with our home study / correspondence program.
3. Are any payment options or financial assistance available?
ACM offers a range of flexible payment options making all courses affordable.
SUBJECT Payment Option
If you prefer to pay by instalments then this option is best for you as you simply pay for each individual subject when you are ready.
PACKAGE Payment Option
This option allows you to pay for two subjects together and therefore receive a discount for each package.
FULL Payment Option
The most cost-saving option for you is to pay the full upfront course fee prior as you will receive a substantial discount.
You can complete your training in as little as 3 months or take up to 3 years. The choice is yours.
In addition to the flexible payment options, you may like to contact your local financial institution to discuss student loan packages.
Austudy is available if you meet Centrelink’s criteria. Applications for assistance are assessed by Centrelink, contact your nearest Centrelink office to discuss your eligibility.
