The Diploma of Science provides extra support during your first year of study, and can be followed by direct entry to the second year of a Bachelor of Science undergraduate degree at the University of Western Australia (UWA).
International students who need help to meet the entry requirements for a UWA Bachelor degree get all the academic and English language support they need from our expert teaching staff. Academic staff help keep you on track by providing regular progress reports.
Studying the Diploma of Science at Taylors College Perth before progressing to the University enables you to become familiar and comfortable with teaching methods in place within the Australian education system. This boosts your chances of graduating on time, and with the best possible degree outcome. Class sizes are kept to a maximum of 25 students so you get lots of contact time with your teachers.
As a graduate of the Diploma of Science you may enter into the second year of a UWA Bachelor degree with one year of advanced standing (academic credit) or eight units (48 credit points) toward the 24 units (144 credit points) course total. You need to achieve at least 50% in all eight units to successfully complete your diploma. Once you successfully achieved a pass in all eight subjects you will be awarded the Diploma of Science, and you will be guaranteed a place in the second year of the UWA Bachelor of Science degree program.
