Students must have a keen interest and time to study and must have completed the grade 12 Diploma or equivalent.
Students must be 17-30 years old
Students must take all the compulsory subjects and then may take any of the elective courses to make up 20 credits.
Courses are scheduled within the hours of the Academy times (8:40am-3:40pm) and are taught by trusted and qualified staff who can provide mentoring as well as subject knowledge.
The schedule is similar to the year 1 schedule but Diploma students need to complete fewer credit hours and so will have more time for private study and field work to begin contributing to the community.
