A stepping stone, or final destination

You may have an interest in the aviation industry and are possibly already working in this area. If so, and you do not have an aviation-related tertiary qualification, the Graduate Diploma in Aviation is the stepping stone to take you to the next level of your career.

It is a 120-credit programme that is run in block courses, specifically designed for those that may be working while studying. It takes one year full-time to complete.
