Graduate Certificate of Demography

The Graduate Certificate of Demography is the only postgraduate certificate of its kind offered in Australia.

The certificate provides students with an opportunity to study population issues in a research-led environment, with a focus on applying learning to real-world scenarios. The certificate will equip students with cutting-edge skills in demographic techniques, research and writing. Graduates will emerge with skills to undertake demographic analysis and apply these to societal issues like population ageing, migration, and population growth.

Completion of coursework for this graduate certificate may be applied towards completion of the Master of Social Research and Master of Public Policy degrees currently offered by ANU.

Our scholarship programs are designed to support students from diverse backgrounds and abilities, and we automatically consider applicants for some of them upon application.
