This course is multi-faceted, using field trip activities, lab work, team work and online learning to assess your progress. We work very hard to help you succeed in our courses, but advise you to consider the following:

  • In addition to full day field trips, you will attend a regional field trip each semester. These run for 3 days/2 nights at an additional cost of approx. $100.
  • If your English skills are not strong you are encouraged to complete an English course first.
  • The best chance for success is if you have completed year 12, a Certificate III or higher, a degree in this or a related course or equivalent training
  • If you have not studied for some time you could consider enrolling in a Certificate III in Laboratory Operations to see how your circumstances support your study first before committing to this course. This certificate also gives you some underpinning skills and knowledge that will be valuable for your Diploma studies.

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.

If this course is available for International students you will need to pay your course fees to TIWA when you accept your offer.
