Australian students who recently missed out on receiving a second round university offer have been urged to consider applying for a Taylors UniLink Diploma.
Study Group Australia and Melbourne-based Taylors College, the organisations behind the scheme, said the diplomas provided students with access to a diversity of university degree programs, allowing successful graduates to apply for "admission with Advanced Standing" to a range of Australian universities.
Taylors UniLink Diplomas have been approved by state accreditation authorities to ensure they are comparable in both their requirements and learning outcomes to the first year of undergraduate study at an Australian university, they added.
"In most cases, successful graduates will be able to enrol into second year at university," commented Tony Cranshaw, campus principal at Taylors College.
Meanwhile, it was also suggested that young Australians enrolling on the diploma scheme will have strong options when they come to compare student finances thanks to the help on offer.
"Taylors UniLink now offers FEE-HELP to local Australian students," said Study Group.
"FEE-HELP is a loan scheme available to eligible fee paying students to pay all or part of their tuition fees."
The next UniLink intake is on Wednesday, February 23rd 2011, with open days being held at the Taylors College campus on four separate dates before then.
