Postgraduate study starts here

Introducing the Postgraduate Certificate in Education and Master of Education (180 points). Apply now for 2017.


Postgraduate Certificate in Education

This is a exciting opportunity to enter into postgraduate study. Completion of just two courses (60 points) will see you gaining your first postgraduate qualification.

It allows you to focus on an area of interest, advance your knowledge and practice and is a pathway into further postgraduate study, including a masters degree if you already have a bachelors degree or a postgraduate diploma in education.

If you don't have the required GPA in your bachelors degree to go straight to masters study, you can complete this certificate first and reassign these course points (60 points) to the MEd(180pts) if you achieve the required GPA.

If you have a teaching diploma or other industry qualification and teaching experience, then this is the perfect opportunity to get into postgraduate study.
