Do you mean undergraduate diploma? I think all the journalism programs have moved to the universities now so they are degree programs. You have to have a degree to be an accredited journalist.

Default Diploma of Journalism

Diploma courses in journalism at Australian universities are at post-graduate level. In some cases they comprise the first part of a masters degree. They usually take one year to complete - sometimes one-and-a-half years. Applicants need to have completed a bachelors degree before they can enrol in the postgraduate diploma.

Two undergraduate diplomas in journalism are offered by vocational colleges in Australia: Macleay College in Sydney and Jschool in Brisbane. Each of these is a one-year diploma. They are both accredited courses and they prepare students for careers in journalism. The vocational college courses are less "theoretical" than the university courses and are more likely to include newsroom internships and a strong practical component.
