To understand whether you are eligible for Commonwealth support and pay the reduced student contributions, please visit our fees page for details on eligibility for Commonwealth support.

The Undergraduate Certificate is a higher education qualification, formally recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework. Undergraduate certificates are accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA).

The Undergraduate Certificate is a higher education qualification of six months duration (full-time) covered by an existing higher education qualification at AQF levels 5, 6, or 7. Course content will be drawn from existing higher education bachelor degrees, to ensure students have the option to transition to the AQF level 5, 6 or 7 qualification on completion of the Undergraduate Certificate.

Fees for undergraduate certificates are based on 2021 student contributions for students eligible for a Commonwealth supported place. To work out fees for your course of interest, view the cost per unit schedule. Units for undergraduate certificates can be found on the course page.

In 2021, selected graduate certificates have been approved to offer Commonwealth Supported Places presenting significant fee savings for students.

Eligible students will pay the student contribution amount, rather than full tuition fees. Click through to the course page to see the total student contribution for your course of interest, or search the units in the cost per unit schedule. Remember, funding has only been confirmed for 2021 so all units would need to be completed in 2021.

Our undergraduate and graduate certificates are available to start in Term 1 (March) with full-time and part-time study options. You can also apply to start in Term 2 (July) for some courses. Please note, students commencing mid-year will need to be able to study full-time to complete all four units in 2021.

For more information on availabilities visit the course page using the links above.

Yes. Upon completion of an undergraduate certificate you will be eligible to receive credit for four units toward the relevant bachelor degree.

You will also be able to articulate directly into the relevant bachelor degree upon completion of the undergraduate certificate. For example, if you complete the Undergraduate Certificate in Information Technology you will be eligible to articulate into the Bachelor of Information Technology and receive credit for four units.

If you study a graduate certificate, you will also be eligible to articulate into the related graduate diploma or masters degree, receiving credit for the four units completed.

Our approved graduate certificates are a great way to take advantage of significant fee savings in 2021, and articulate into a masters degree.

CQUniversity, in partnership with the Australian Government, has made additional Commonwealth supported places (CSP) available in 2021 for selected undergraduate and postgraduate short courses. This means eligible students can study these courses in 2021 and pay reduced student contribution fees.

No funding has been committed for 2022 so fees for units commenced in 2022 will not be Commonwealth supported, and will revert to full tuition fees.
