Higher Education Certificates
The Australian Government are funding additional places in a range of national priorities. In response, we are launching a number of new Higher Education Certificates in: Applied Data Analytics, Cyber Security, Data Science, Digital Futures, Educational Media, and Technology (Defence Industries).
These new Commonwealth Supported Places are only available in 2021, so don't wait any longer. Applications for semester one, 2021 will close on 8 March 2021.
What are Higher Education Certificates?
Gain fundamental knowledge and build new skills in areas of national priority. These new certificates will allow you to strengthen your CV and gain a competitive advantage in the job market, upskill your current capabilities, or simply lay the foundation of a fresh new start. Made of four individual subjects, these certificates will also offer you:
- flexible study mode - a combination of face-to-face and online learning
