Diploma in Criminology

The Diploma in Criminology is an important stepping-stone to achieve your career and study goals. Students who undertake this diploma will be able to gain credit for up to the first year of study and articulate into the second year of the Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at ACU or exit with the Diploma in Criminology as a standalone qualification.

Not only does our Diploma in Criminology have lower entry requirements than our bachelor degrees, but it will help you to develop skills needed to succeed in more advanced tertiary study.

Our Diploma in Criminology provides domestic students with a Commonwealth-supported place (CSP-funded) and will help you achieve your goals.

We are here to support you from start to finish whether you have just finished Year 12 or finished years ago. We ensure smaller class sizes, offer tailored support as you transition to university study, and provide a range of student services to help you succeed.

Students will be able to commence study in the Diploma in Criminology at ACU's Melbourne and North Sydney campuses from Semester 1, 2024. Applications to commence study in Semester 1, 2024 will open in August 2023.
