Our Graduate Certificate programs involve the completion of 4 courses (24 units of credit). For programs taught in the 3+ term calendar a full time enrolment does not typically include more than 3 courses in any term. Therefore students will usually be enrolled in two terms to complete a Graduate Certificate - typically 2 courses in each term, or 3 courses in the first Term and 1 course in the second).
Students commencing in Term 2 will start on 1 June 2020 and complete in early December 2020 (a period of 6 months). Given that students must commence in Term 2 in order to access the discounted rates the Graduate Certificate programs are listed as 0.5 years on the Course Seeker website.
The duration of Graduate Certificate programs listed in the Degree Finder reflects the longest period between the start and end date of two consecutive Terms, as a student who commences a Graduate Certificate in Term 3 will begin their studies in September and complete at the end of Term 1 in May.
