Overview of the course

Overview of the course

A Diploma of Human Resource Management (BSB50320) will give you the training you need to work as an HR professional in a variety of settings across the human resource sector. Your coursework will equip you with the knowledge and skills to manage and retain staff, meet the legal requirements of a HR role and to motivate and get the best out of your workforce.

This diploma requires that you first complete 3 units in Introductory Human Resources Management Skills to develop fundamental business knowledge. With these units completed, you can then embark on an additional 9 units to graduate with your diploma. If you decide not to continue, you can exit from the introductory skills course with a Statement of Attainment.

Please note: If you complete the Course in Introductory Skills within six months, you gain automatic entry into the diploma. You will have two years from enrolment to complete the remaining units of the diploma. You are required to be self-directed in your learning and complete your coursework at a reasonable progression, so you can earn your qualification within this timeframe.

This course includes both graded (scored between 50100) and ungraded (Competent or Not Yet Competent) units. Where grading is applied, this occurs over and above the determination of competency. The inclusion of grading occurs to allow articulation into higher education programs.

View all FAQs

  • Do I have to purchase learning materials?

    For students undertaking a degree, most of your learning materials are included with a free license provided to you by Swinburne Online. However, in some cases, you will be notified via your student email that you will need to buy specific software or eTexts. For TAFE Business students, all of your learning materials will be available online and are covered by your course fees. You won’t need to purchase any further materials.

  • What is the difference between a degree and a diploma?

    Offered by universities, TAFEs, Registered Training Organisations and Community Education Centres, a diploma is a practical qualification, while a degree is typically offered by universities and encompasses more academic courses. For more information about the different qualifications, visit our Online Courses page.

  • Where can I get important information about the VET Student Loan Program?

    You must read the VET Student Loans Information Booklet before applying for a loan. A VET student loan results in a HELP debt that continues to be a debt due to the government until it is repaid. You will start repaying the loan when you reach the minimum repayment threshold. The rate at which you repay the loan is based on your income, as you earn more you will repay a higher percentage of your taxable income towards your loan. Check the Study Assist website to find out more. We encourage you to seek independent financial advice to be sure a VET Student Loan is right for you.
