Get degree qualified in IT from La Trobe with this cutting edge pathway

Chisholm will not be able to commence new students into the Bachelor of Information Technology in 2021.

Recently, La Trobe University and Chisholm have taken the difficult decision to cease taking new students into the Bachelor of Information Technology. The COVID-19 pandemic has led Higher Education providers to evaluate all courses and delivery options and many universities, including La Trobe, are renegotiating their partnership arrangements to ensure ongoing viability. We leave this page so current students have access to information. If you complete the enquiry form, we will keep you informed should circumstances change.

Turn your diploma into a degree with Chisholm and chase your true calling in IT with a Bachelor of Information Technology (LATBIT2). With Chisholm, you can upgrade your Diploma of Software Development to a La Trobe degree in just two years full time (one full day and two half days a week). Mid-year enrolments are now open.

If you aspire to be tertiary qualified in the information and communications technology (ICT) field, the Bachelor of Information Technology offered by Chisholm, in partnership with La Trobe University, is for you.

You'll be able to study locally, in the central business district of Dandenong, and fast track your degree by combining one year of TAFE study with two years of further study.

The pathway to this degree might look like this:
Cert IV in IT (six months) or VCE IT -> Diploma of Software Development (six months) -> the degree (three years)
In the same time or less than a regular degree at uni, you can graduate with a Cert IV, diploma and degree.

Why choose the Chisholm and La Trobe partnership?
• No ATAR required.
• Save time & money. All classes close to home at Chisholm @ 311 in central Dandenong.
• It’s just two years (rather than three) to gain a La Trobe University degree and better opportunities if you have a recent diploma.
• Full time is two or three days of classes a week. Work while you study.
• Small class sizes, individual attention, great results.

When you complete the Bachelor of Information Technology, you'll have the confidence and ability to work in a variety of industries as an ICT professional.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Information Technology may apply for membership with the Australian Computer Society (ACS).
