The Diploma of Justice invites students to take the first step in their criminal justice careers in a supported, hands-on environment.

You’ll learn the theory and practice behind operational functions within the Victorian criminal justice system – covering areas such as foundation legal principles, management of adult offenders, how to work within family violence and culturally diverse circumstances, and more.

At the end of the course, students will have the confidence to begin their careers in the justice system.

The course is taught over 4 terms of nine weeks. Students typically have 16 hours of timetabled classes a week over three days. Students need to undertake an average of 6 hours further study a week outside of timetabled classes.

In 2021 the course will be taught for the entire year in virtual classroom (online) with timetabled classes. Students are required to attend timetabled classes.
