SIM diploma to Australia University?

Hi , anyone knows if SIM Diploma can be used to apply for UWA University Of Western Australia. According to an agent from https://www.studyabroad.sg/
, she told me that my SIM diploma can apply to one of the group of 8 Unis which is UWA. Then can also apply to a few others lower ranking unis such as Curtin, Macquarie, Newcastle, QUT, RMIT, UNISA, UTS , Wollongong

Also what category is SIM diploma under? Is it an advanced diploma or a private diploma coz it was a 1.5 years diploma

Cheers

It's all perspective to be honest. I think they have an edge against DL degrees in government jobs. But other than that, there isnt as much difference as you'd think.

right now i have to decide whether to go aus UWA or go to SIM-Wollongong .. Will be studying computer science.. SIM 2.5 years + its cheaper while UWA is 3 years but its more reputable... so right now i really really cannot decide if it will actually be better for me in the future to find jobs in singapore as i am actually not local... Also i have been studying here in Singapore for almost 14 years and i love this place... really really dont want to leave my gf as well..... Someone with experience pls advice.... I am from Thailand

if u want to stay in SG and do not wish to relocate to OZ base on above reasons. just stay with SIM.
not local and have been in SG for 14yrs I assume U are PR.

computer sci - it really about how they quiz u. if U are learning and can clear interview that matter the most. U hope spending more at UWA provides better training than SIM. usually better uni helps with 2 things not just reputation.
1st - competitive environment
2nd - harder coursework

then again going to UWA may open more doors, alumni may help. if U step into an interview with your hiring manager has certain bias towards NUS/NTU/UofMelb then U very much SOL. getting the 1st job may depend on such factor.

Patryn33 is a mod at brightsparks btw. So his advice is definitely sound... in light of the fact you are not local, i really dont think it makes much of a diff in terms of job prospects. But i agree with patryn in a sense that UWA sounds better, and a non DL degree may be slightly more rigorous. That being said, staying back because of a relationship is NOT a smart move.
UWA is better in terms of ranking. If money is not and issue, and if you're willing to put in the work, go to australia.
