The Graduate Certificate in Computing is designed for students who want to complete a short qualification in Computing. You will study four advanced topics in Computing to complement or update your existing qualifications, or – if you have no background in the area – you can undertake four introductory level courses before considering a higher-level qualification in this discipline.

You will be able to articulate from the Graduate Certificate in Computing to the Graduate Diploma with credit for the completed courses, provided you have not failed anything while enrolled in the Graduate Certificate or as long as you have achieved a 70% average. If you intend to articulate and complete a double major in the Graduate Diploma or the Master of Information Technology, please pay attention when selecting Graduate Certificate courses to ensure they align with the requirements for your preferred major.
