Upskill with micro-credentials

Our micro-credentials are designed to help you make a difference – to your career, to your organisation and your community.

Designed in collaboration with employers, these online micro-credentials give you the opportunity to apply new knowledge and skills directly to your workplace.

From project management, community development and networking, to financial crime, intelligence and intersectionality, choose one or two micro-credentials that will let you gain the required skill set for the job at hand – then add more to your learning journey as needed.

You can choose to study in several micro-sessions throughout the year. You’ll learn along like-minded students across eight-week sessions (some subjects even have an optional on-campus or online workshop for collaborative, face-to-face learning). It means you can gain new skills in just two months. A two-point micro-credential only takes around four hours of study a week, while a four-point micro-credential just eight.

There are no entry requirements however, there is a reasonable expectation that applicants have easy access to a computer and the internet, basic computer literacy skills and are proficient in English language.

Step 1: Complete micro-credentials to build your skills and knowledge

Four micro-subjects shown as puzzle pieces, leading to a further qualification.

Step 2: Stack your micro-credentials towards a graduate certificate

Four micro-subjects shown as part of a graduate certificate.

*You can also enrol directly into a graduate certificate which may include a set of micro-credentials.

Step 3: Take the next step and study a master's degree

Four micro-subjects and a graduate certificate combined to contribute to a master's.

*You can also enrol directly into a master's degree.
