The faster, more affordable way to grow your qualifications

With Commonwealth supported places (CSP) available for studies to be completed in 2021, our graduate certificates equip you with greater in-demand skills to enhance your employability – while offering heavily subsidised fees. These courses are open to domestic students with relevant undergraduate qualifications, but only while places last.

Without my certificate, I wouldn’t be where I am today

During my time as a Marketing Manager, I supported campaigns for VMware, Oracle, Honeywell and AWS. My interest in technology grew – so I chose to complete a graduate certificate in IT.

The strong sense of community in the cohort was a big motivation, and the passion each of my tutors had for their disciplines was inspiring.

Without my certificate, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Throughout the course, I was able to further develop my understanding of SQL, R and Excel, which I use heavily in my role now.

Enjoy better access to a leading education

These government-subsidised courses are also offered in blended learning modes which give you the flexibility to balance your professional growth with other commitments. You could finish a certificate in as little as six months. And the credit points you gain can be used to fast-track a relevant master’s degree. That means two major qualifications in less time than it takes to do two separate courses.
