The course of study for a Graduate Certificate is 60 credits (four courses) studied predominantly at the level of the final year of a bachelor's degree. Graduate Certificates can be completed in one semester of full-time study or studied part-time with no time limit for completion.
45 of the 60 credits must be at the 300 level (with the exception of the Graduate Certificate in Business and Sustainability and the Graduate Certificate in Science and Innovation and Entrepreneurship), and the course of study must include 30 credits chosen from the relevant undergraduate programme. The remaining credits may be chosen from any of the bachelor degree courses offered at Lincoln University.
Your course of study must be approved by the Academic Co-ordinator who will ensure that the combination of courses is relevant and coherent. With the approval of the relevant Academic Co-ordinator, students may substitute one 300 level course with an appropriate course from the 600 level.
The rules on prerequisites for advanced courses would not normally apply to students enrolling in these qualifications. However, the Academic Co-ordinator must be satisfied that you have adequate preparation through previous study or work experience.
