The Graduate Certificate Explained

If you’ve never finished any university study but have the right professional experience, you can still start your Masters through the Graduate Certificate pathway.

The Graduate Certificate is simply the first 4 subjects of your Masters degree. You don’t pay for or study any extra subjects by completing your Graduate Certificate first, and you end up with two postgraduate qualifications when you finish your Masters.

Some of our Graduate Certificates courses have been awarded Commonwealth Supported Places (CSPs) as part of the federal government’s Job-Ready Graduates Package. This means that all Australian Citizens/Residents and NZ citizens are eligible for a discount on all subjects studied in:

What are the benefits of completing the Graduate Certificate?

Once you’ve got your Graduate Certificate, you have lots of options for completing the rest of your studies. You can finish off the last 8 subjects of your Masters and graduate with 2 postgraduate qualifications, you can take a break from your studies and come back when you’re ready, or you can just walk away with a postgraduate degree.

As you’ll be an alumni when you finish your Graduate Certificate, you’ll also be eligible for a 10% reduction on fees for the rest of your Masters.
