The Federal VET Diploma in Commerce is a six-semester program, with two years of study plus a one-year placement. In practical terms, the semesters are structured as follows:

Our students are regularly monitored. Lessons focus on practical skills, aiming to prepare students on the Federal VET Diploma in Commerce for real life in the workplace.

Students work on theory and exercises in the classroom and complete additional work at home. The students’ homework is marked, and they are required to revise and sit progress tests as part of their assessment. Students produce regular written work, forcing them to study and keep up to date with the program. They also sit exams at the end of each term to assess what they have learned.

During the first three semesters, students sit two exams (which they must pass to continue on the course). Only the most hard-working and diligent students will be able to continue their Federal VET Diploma in Commerce with a 12-month business placement.


Students who complete our program can find employment in the following areas: Commercial employee, Administration, Accounting, Sales and marketing.

Students can also prepare a professional maturité in the field of commerce.
