Path to obtain the skilled indipendent visa

I'm not graduate, I have 5 years working experience as programmer.

I read the admission requirements for the graduate diploma in information technology: in some universities the work experience can replace the bachelor degree. I thought that: I study 1 year, I obtain the graduate diploma and with the 5 years working experience I can obtain the visa.
Is it right?

Unfortunately it may not be quite as simple as that Andrea for first of all, whatever qualifications you have/get need to be assessed by ACS, a summary of the process on this thread -

As I have indicated there ACS have certain requirements for both level of qualification and experience and you should read the FAQ on their web site.

When you have a positive assessment you are then in a position to apply for a GSM visa and you need to be aware of quite a few recent changes, processing priorities introduced and there is nothing to say that there may not be future changes.

But first steps are certainly to see about what you need for the qualifications approval and alternately if you were able to find an employer located in what are classed as regional areas and they are prepared to sponsor you, a RSMS119 may suit you.
