After completing a Diploma at the National Institute of Technology, you can choose to enrol in a Bachelor’s degree program at one of NIT’s higher education and university partners.
Diploma courses at the National Institute of Technology are 1-year (52 weeks) courses. You will receive a certificate of your diploma qualification once you achieve competency in all the required units for the diploma qualification.
Bachelor’s (undergraduate) degrees are usually 3-year programs. Once you complete a diploma at the National Institute of Technology, NIT’s partner higher education and university partners will grant you credit equivalent to 1 year in specific bachelor’s degree courses and you will be able to complete a degree in 2 years.
This is amazing as you get a chance to receive two qualifications, a Diploma after completing the first year of studies at NIT and a bachelor’s degree after completing another two years of study at one of NIT’s higher education or university partners.
