Providing staff with world-class learning opportunities will increase employee satisfaction and position your organisation as an employer of choice.
Delivered through our faculties, research centres and postgraduate study, our professional development courses provide you with flexibility through consultation, collaboration and unified virtual and physical learning environments.
We boast some of the world's best university professionals and external consultants who are specialists in their fields. They are selected for their superior academic qualifications, corporate experience and excellent presentation skills.
Our courses draw on the latest research, are taught using relevant industry examples and have a strong practical focus. This dynamic combination of theory and problem-based learning achieves maximum learning outcomes.
If you want to study one or more subjects without advancing to an award – such as a degree or diploma – you can undertake non-award study.
You can apply for non-award admission as preliminary work for a higher degree, for professional requirements or because of an interest in the area.
You complete the course as any other student, attending lectures, tutorials, exams and assessments, and your results will be recorded on your University of Newcastle transcript.
