Many of our courses are accredited by peak bodies such as CPA Australia, the Australian Institute of Project Management and the Australian Psychological Accreditation Council. This makes our graduates widely recognised as experts in their field.

Flexible entry requirements

With a five star rating for entry flexibility across a range of postgraduate courses from the 2014 Good Universities Guide, you have the opportunity to apply based on your life experience, and not just academic qualifications. We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to advance.
