Graduate Certificates and Diplomas
The graduate certificates and diplomas are ideal for those wanting to broaden existing knowledge, gain industry experience or retrain in areas of demand.
You will need a bachelor's degree or equivalent.
Non-graduates who can demonstrate significant experience in a relevant industry, or students who have completed other tertiary qualifications of a lesser status, may also apply for provisional entry.
Study for a graduate certificate involves four units predominantly at the level of the final year of a bachelor's degree.
Three units must be at 300 level, at least two must be chosen from the relevant undergraduate programme.
The rest are to be chosen from the schedule of bachelor's degree subjects.
Certificates can be completed in one semester of full-time study, or part-time with no time limit on completion.
It is possible, on completion of the certificate, to credit subjects passed towards a diploma.
Study for a graduate diploma involves eight courses predominantly at the level of the final year of a bachelor's degree.
Five courses must be at the 300 level, with at least four courses chosen from the relevant undergraduate programme.
The remainder of the courses are to be chosen from the schedule of bachelor's degree courses.
Diplomas can be completed in two semesters of full-time study or part-time with no time limit on completion.
