Often your first university qualification, a bachelor's degree gives you foundational skills and knowledge. You can often choose to study online or on campus, and many bachelor's degrees include workplace learning experiences where you get hands-on experience and build your professional network.

Honours

These courses are short, entry-level qualifications. They are ideal for you to upskill in your field, undertake professional development or explore a new area of interest. They can also provide a foundation for further study. Specific courses avaliable are -

University Certificate in Workforce Essentials and Diploma of General Studies
