With the opportunity to complete one of the workforce-ready qualifications in as little as four months full-time or one year part-time, the short courses offer a taste for postgraduate study or can provide a steppingstone into a Master Level Qualification.
In addition to the Government subsidy, all students will have the ability to defer tuition payments via the Government FEE-HELP scheme.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic, Professor Geoff Crisp said the short courses would be excellent life-long learning for many in the community.
"After a year of job uncertainty due to COVID-19, this is a great opportunity for those looking to upskill within their field or start paving their way towards studying a Master Level Qualification," he said.
"Not to mention the chance to receive a subsidy on these valuable programs and obtain a university level qualification in as little as four months."
