The Graduate Certificate offers a great opportunity to extend your learning in a range of areas without committing too much time or money. For me, completing the internship with Monash was a no-brainer - the history and reputation of the Faculty puts its graduates ahead of the pack. Alex Bongers (2011 Graduate)
