Hear from our students

“A Graduate Certificate of Studies is ideal for those who want to choose what they want to study for postgraduate. I was able to replicate the requirements from the Master of History program through my subject choices. It gives you a taste of what further postgraduate studies could be and the opportunity to meet likeminded people in your cohort.”
