Students commencing the Graduate Certificate in Trimester 2 in 2016 (or Trimester 2 from 2017) are able to complete the program on a full-time basis. Students commencing in Trimester 1 in 2016 (or Trimester 1 from 2017) can only complete this program on a part-time basis and, therefore, Trimester 1 entry is not available to International students.
