Certificate structure

Our Certificates include a mix of compulsory and elective short courses. You can complete these courses online or face-to-face. They are open entry with no prior qualification required.

If you complete a face-to-face Certificate, you have the option to do this via our intensive mode (six short courses across three consecutive days). Please note: when registering for intensive mode, electives will be selected for you, these electives can be changed subject to availability.

To graduate from a Certificate, you must complete and pass the online multiple choice exams for each of the six short courses required for your Certificate, within a 12-month period.
