Course Description

If you're seeking a shorter period of study than that required for the Master's degree, you should consider this program. You can still choose to complete your certificate with units of study that suit your interests, or specialise in your chosen field from our offerings in International Education.

Subject to meeting progression requirements in the graduate certificate, you may apply to transfer to the Graduate Diploma in Educational Studies or the Master of Education. The course does not provide a recognised teaching qualification but is part of the broader postgraduate educational studies program for leaders and future leaders of dynamic and innovative education.
