Benefits of packaged courses

Personal support and success

Chisholm’s small class sizes support you at an academic and personal level as you transition to Australia’s education system and way of life. The learning experience and skills developed at Chisholm will build your confidence and enhance your chance of success when you transition into study at bachelor degree level.

Multiple qualifications

You will gain multiple qualifications – an internationally recognised Australian vocational qualification(s) and a bachelor degree from La Trobe or Deakin universities.

Skills for part time work

Through the study of a vocational qualification you will gain skills for employment which may assist in gaining relevant part time work while you continue to study at bachelor degree level.

Post study work

You are eligible to apply for a Post-Study Work Visa on completion of a Bachelor degree study (minimum two years' study) which will entitle you to work in Australia for two years upon graduation. Visit

Financial benefit

Packaged courses could be a financially beneficial option for you as the tuition fee for diploma and advanced diploma courses is less than the tuition fee of studying a year at an Australian University.

Example: Diploma of Accounting and La Trobe Bachelor of Accounting delivered at Chisholm over three years is packaged at a tuition fee of:

AUD $46 000 - saving approximately $15 000 - $20 000 for the package.

The packaged course application process is straightforward. You or your nominated agent will deal with Chisholm exclusively for your entire application plus there are no application fees.
