Why study the Diploma in Town Planning at UNE? The Diploma of Town Planning has been designed to provide an opportunity for university study for people who may never have considered nor undertaken university study before. It also provides a pathway to further university study. The Diploma is an introductory course suited to: * people who are looking at widening their employment prospects; * people seeking a career change and who are interested in entering a career in planning; * local government employees who wish to develop their skills and career prospects; * TAFE students who have completed a CERT IV (in any area); * people currently working in the planning system in a clerical/administrative capacity; and * unqualified planning assistants. The program consists of eight units. It includes four compulsory first-year units, followed by four elective units. The Diploma will normally take people two years to complete, at a rate of two units per trimester. However the programme is flexible and people may complete at different rates. The course is delivered online and can be undertaken from any location. There is no compulsory on-campus attendance, although some of the units in the program have non-mandatory intensive schools which provide an opportunity for face-to-face instruction and interaction with other students. The online learning environment and support provided for the course also provides many opportunities for interaction with lecturers and students. Completion of the Diploma does not in itself lead to membership of the Planning Institute of Australia - although for anyone who would like to go on to further study, units passed toward the Diploma can be credited towards the Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning at UNE. The UNE Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning is fully accredited with the Planning Institute of Australia. Career Opportunities Examples of career opportunities include positions in local and state government, private consulting firms, development companies, state and federal government departments involved with urban affairs, environmental management, transport, community development, heritage conservation, regional prosperity and related fields.
