Postgrad coursework options
Graduate certificates aim to broaden the skills and knowledge you have already gained in an undergraduate program or provide vocational skills and knowledge in a new professional area. Graduate certificate courses may be part of a variety of studies in a specific subject area (an articulated course), offering you progression from a graduate certificate to a graduate diploma, or from a graduate diploma to a master's degree.
Graduate diplomas are similar to graduate certificates but offer a more in-depth understanding of a subject area and can take up to one year full-time or four years part-time to complete.
