Graduate Diploma in Built Environments

The University of Melbourne

Course details

CRICOS course code: 080611K

Level of study: Postgraduate


The Graduate Diploma in Built Environments allows you to develop skills by creating an individualised course of study. With the approval of the Course Coordinator, you can select subjects from across the broad range of disciplines offered by the Melbourne School of Design.

The flexibility this course offers is of great benefit to students who:

  • do not wish to specialise in one particular area
  • are not yet certain where their interests and career aspirations lie
  • possess a relevant existing qualification and wish to enhance their qualifications through advanced studies in areas of their choice.

Course structure

  • The course is available as 1-year full-time, or 2 years part-time.
  • All students must complete 100 points of undergraduate or graduate level subjects.
  • The course draws on undergraduate subjects (usually in a major sequence of study) to produce a coherent program appropriate for graduates wishing to progress to higher level study.
  • A Graduate Diploma should not consist entirely of lower-level undergraduate subjects. In most cases, students will choose a combination of undergraduate and some fourth-year level graduate subjects.
