Dolph Business School Certificates and Diplomas courses are nationally recognised qualifications. This means that they are recognised by all Australian Universities for determining your entry eligibility and course credit.
The course credit you are granted will vary depending on the undergraduate degree you choose to undertake, and the grades you attain for your Certificate or Diploma. Most prestigious universities expect you to maintain a 75-80% average to be eligible for course credit towards your bachelor degree and the time and money saved through a transfer of credits can be substantial!
Upon completion of your Certificate or Diploma program at Dolph Business School, should you wish to continue your studies and apply for an undergraduate degree course, our Student & Administration Support team will assist you with your enrolment application, as well as your advanced standing (course credit) application.
Dolph Business has credit agreements in place with several universities across Australia which guarantees students entry and credit transfer upon completion of our certificate and diploma courses, and could take up to a year off your bachelor’s degree! These credit agreements are of great importance as outside of these, there is no guarantee of the amount of credit transfer you will receive.
|University||Degree||Course Credit||Approximate Time Saved|
|Bachelor of Accounting||2 units||3-months|
|Bachelor of Business||4 units||6-months|
|Bachelor of Business||4 units||6-months|

We do not believe in our students just learning for the sake of passing their exams. This is why the assessment for this course is conducted using a combination of realistic workplace simulated tasks, projects, knowledge tests, and response to case studies – NO EXAMS! The following provides a brief explanation of the assessment methods that are to be applied:
Written Reports / Case Studies.
The student is required to produce a range of written records or reports based on real workplace scenarios or based on a case study that is provided by the assessor. This will usually require the student to consider carefully the situation presented, undertake some research to inform their response and then to propose their recommended actions. There may be a practical portion for the student to demonstrate a range of skills relevant to the workplace. This could be by way of presentations or role-play activities.
The student is required to undertake a range of projects in the context of his or her own workplace or on a case study that is provided by the assessor. A project will require the creation of various workplace documents (reports, memos, etc.). Projects may have a practical presentation component where the student may be asked to present or role-play the outcomes of their project or research.
The student is required to participate in knowledge tests over the course of his or her study. The student will be required to individually complete the test. The student may research their answers from the course training materials and notes as well as relevant workplace references.
