Gain a business qualification and enter second year university!

The Phoenix Diploma of Business offers students the opportunity to study in a unique, specialised, direct entry pathway into second year University (Undergraduate Programs) in Australia. On successful completion of the Diploma of Business (University Pathway stream), students are equipped with the skills and knowledge required to transfer to their relevant undergraduate program with a full year of advanced standing at Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University,  Notre Dame University, Kaplan Business School, and Sheridan Institute of Higher Education.

This course is ideal for students unable to meet the academic entry requirements for Higher Education as an alternative, affordable and effective pathway to university.

At Phoenix Academy we strive for innovative and modern delivery methods in all programs, therefore, our School of Business programs are delivered via the ‘Block Model’ method enabling students to focus on one subject at a time instead of juggling multiple subjects and assessments in one term.
