Changing expectations for information design course
CPIT currently offers the only information design graduate qualification in Australasia, the Graduate Diploma of Information Design, which teaches students how to write, edit, design, manage, and test information so that is easily understood.
This qualification has been delivered online at the graduate level since 2003, as five courses and an internship, and has been designed to meet industry demand and expectations.
CPIT recognises that changing industry demands dictate a re-evaluation of the qualification, including a review of both its content and how it may be delivered in the future.
In the meantime, CPIT will give those students currently enrolled in the programme the opportunity to complete their qualification. The internship component of the qualification will be kept open until July 2018 to enable all current students to graduate. CPIT will not be taking any new enrolments in the programme.
Those currently enrolled will be contacted by CPIT to ensure they are aware of the timeframe for completion. They will also be able to discuss with their tutor how to manage their workloads and complete any outstanding courses.
