Pathway options

We've simplified entry to a number of graduate certificate courses to help broaden your study options.

You can gain entry into select courses via:

  • a completed bachelor degree (or higher qualification) in any discipline, or
  • a completed diploma in a relevant area, with at least two years (full time or equivalent) professional experience in a relevant area, or
  • five years (full time or equivalent) professional experience in a relevant area.

Discover the benefits

A new direction

You can use your completed undergraduate degree to gain entry into an unrelated postgraduate study area. Pursue a new direction, prepare for a career in a new industry or learn a new specialisation within your current field.

Direct entry

If you haven’t studied at uni, you can use a combination of diploma study and professional experience as a pathway into postgraduate study. You can advance your career with a formal qualification in as little as six months, graduating with a higher level qualification and expanding your career options.

Flexible options

Our range of study options means that you could be on your way to a fresh qualification by studying online, after hours, or in an intensive block mode, which can mean little interruption to your work schedule.

Study support

Be reassured that if you are new to uni or haven’t studied for a while, there are excellent support programs available to build your study confidence.

We understand that you might want to build your degree a little differently. You might be working or have family commitments and not be able to attend every class. You might want to study a single subject, take classes over the summer holidays, or fast-track your degree, there are options to explore.
