The Postgraduate Certificate of Professional Development is awarded when a combination of short courses worth 60 credit points in total have been successfully completed.

You can choose to complete one short course and then return to take a further course at a later stage (any credits will be retained for you). To maintain currency, it is recommended that combinations of short courses leading to the award of the Postgraduate Certificate of Professional Development are completed within a five year timeframe.

Short courses are also available in a range of different formats to help meet the flexibility required by those currently in employment such as block (three full consecutive days during one week), weekly (morning, afternoons or evenings), staggered (three or four days across a twelve week semester) or online (with no need to attend a University campus).

Payments for each short course can also be made over a number of months.

Please contact us if you want to find out any further information about any of the short courses available.
