The Graduate Diploma in Records Management and Archives program offered through Open Universities Australia will give you skills and training in managing and handling records, archives and information.
Studying this course, you will gain an understanding of the processes and uses of information within businesses and organisations. You will also learn the practice of archiving within a professional context.
A practical fieldwork component will also give you the training to match your education in records management and archives.
Open Universities courses are offered in specific study intakes every year, known as Study Periods or Sessions. This means more flexibility as you can choose when to start studying.
If you are studying undergraduate units you can start at the beginning of any of the four Study Periods each year, each lasting 13 weeks. Most postgraduate courses are offered in three Sessions per year, with each Session lasting 14 weeks.
Exams are usually held in the week following the end of each Study Period or Session.
