Did you obtain the diploma already or are you still in the process of obtaining it?
Here is the government web page that explains how this works:
So, as long as your institution is recognized and you have the requisite number of credits as per the website it does not matter if the institution is not actually a university nor does it matter if you attended part time only.
You can do the courses over many years, but what the site is saying is that it has to be equivalent to one year. So if a one year program requires five full credits, so long as you have the five full credits it is comparable to you having attended school for one year, even if you took several years to obtain those five credits.
It doesn't matter how long the course takes. It matters whether the course is considered to be equivalent to one recognized regular course.
