Discounted Graduate Certificate Short Courses
Looking to upskill or reskill? Now is the time.
We are currently offering government subsidised places on many of our high-quality graduate certificates. You're eligible for a discount of up to 80% on course fees and you may also qualify for HECS-HELP meaning there will be no upfront course fees.
Our graduate certificates are designed to allow you to further advance your current career or embark on a new one. Upon completion, the graduate certificate can be used as a pathway and provide up to 40 credits into relevant Master’s degrees.
Eligible degrees are listed below. Apply through our standard online application process and our Admissions team will assess your eligibility.
CSP places are only available in 2021. If commencing mid-year, to complete in this timeframe, you will be required to study full-time. Students who study part-time and do not complete the course in 2021 can continue their studies on a full-fee basis.
