The graduation requirements for a Graduate Certificate is 60 credits (four courses) studied predominantly at the level of the final year of a bachelor 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 300 level and the course of study must include 30 credits (two courses) chosen from the relevant undergraduate programme. The remaining courses can be chosen from any of the bachelor's degree courses offered at Lincoln University. With the approval from the relevant Academic Co-ordinator, you may substitute one 300 level course with an appropriate course at the 600 level.
Your course of study must be approved by the Academic Co-ordinator who will ensure that the combination of courses is relevant and coherent.
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.
