Through the Government's short online courses scheme, you may be eligible to complete a graduate certificate at the University of Sydney in 2020 at a significantly discounted rate.
The Government's short online courses scheme promotes study in areas that align with national priorities and addresses the needs of large and growing sectors of the modern economy, including: health, education, science and information technology. It allows you to access the support you need to achieve your goals, change careers or extend your employment opportunities.
To help you make the most of this opportunity and to boost your career, we are offering a select number of graduate certificates online at the discounted rates. These graduate certificates can provide a pathway to further studies in the relevant graduate diploma and/or master's, subject to meeting progression requirements.
