About this course

If you want to master the basics of IT, the Graduate Certificate in Information Technology is designed for graduates who haven't previously studied the subject. In this half year program, you'll learn core IT concepts and techniques, with a strong focus on computer-based information systems and database technologies.

You'll complete four courses from a huge range of options, which cover topics from an introductory to an advanced level, including software systems, database systems, information security, and user-centred design.

You'll also benefit from our flexible program. The Graduate Certificate in Information Technology offers such a large number of elective courses that you can tailor your studies to suit your interests, your industry or your career goals.

On completion, you can choose to progress to the Graduate Diploma or Master of Information Technology. Because courses in the graduate certificate are taken from the Master's course list, you can transfer study credits to the higher-level programs.
