Hi Friend

Education is crucial to improving the lives of people living with dementia and their families. As our health and aged care sectors face ongoing challenges, now is the time to expand your dementia knowledge. 

Start studying our Diploma of Dementia Care in semester 2 with a 100% HECS waiver *.

To obtain the 100% HECS waiver for the Diploma of Dementia Care (eight units), you must initially apply for and complete the Undergraduate Certificate in Dementia Care (which equates to the first four units in the Diploma of Dementia Care). 

Our diplomas are especially relevant for carers, aged care and community health workers. They are fully online and can be studied full-time or part-time. You'll learn through assessments such as quizzes, discussion boards, essays and presentations, with a dedicated team of Student Advisors to help you throughout your study.

Join us for a webinar on Wednesday 9 June 2021 at 12pm AEST to hear about the differences between the Diploma of Dementia Care and Diploma of Ageing Studies and Services.
