Course details

Level of study: Career Based/Vocational


The ICT50615 Diploma of Website Development is the flagship course of Australian Programming College. The course is delivered over 50 weeks in two (2) 22-week semesters, with a 2-week mid-semester break during the semesters and a 2-week break between the two semesters, totally 50 weeks. Our diploma course requires full-time classroom attendance two days a week, coupled with homework and assignment tasks for consolidating and assessing the knowledge and skills absorbed within each training session.

Australian Programming College has a mission to “train individuals with the ability to innovate in the Information Technology industry; students that will not get turned down a job due to lack of experience in the sector.” We have incorporated this mission through the rigour in our ICT50615 training program, through the constant consolidation of practice-oriented, industrially relevant skills and knowledge, woven into a training style that reflects a typical bachelor-level course.

The ICT50615 Diploma of Website Development features four main components, similar to those commonly found in a university course:

  • Lectures
  • Tutorials
  • Assignments
  • Examinations
