National Priority Short Courses

As part of the Federal Government’s Higher Education Relief Package, Swinburne University is providing courses in high priority disciplines to workers displaced by the COVID-19 crisis. The courses are significantly discounted for domestic students to allow you to complete study during the next 6 months and support your future employment opportunities. Whether you complete 2 or 4 units, you’ll gain a University qualification. You can then continue your studies with a Commonwealth Supported Place.

Find out more about each course by selecting the course you’re interested in below or apply today.

Frequently asked questions

  • Is the whole course discounted?

    Units you complete prior to 1 December are discounted, so this includes the two units available in Teaching Period 2, 2020. If you continue studying following Teaching Period 2, you can do so with a Commonwealth Supported Place, rather than the standard full fee unit fee.

  • What is the entry criteria?

    You can find the entry criteria on the relevant course information page. The courses are open to workers who have been displaced by the COVID-19 crisis. Students who are currently enrolled in the course cannot apply for the discounted pricing.

  • Why are these courses discounted?

    Swinburne University has worked with the Federal Government to provide short, focused online courses to workers displaced by the COVID-19 crisis. These courses have been significantly discounted to allow you to complete study during the next 6 months and support your future employment opportunities.

  • How do I ensure I’m enrolled with a discounted fee?

    Your discounted fee will be applied at the time of enrolment.

  • Can I obtain help to defer payment?

    Yes, students can defer their payment though a HECS-HELP loan.

  • What if I only want to complete two units?

    If you enrol in the Graduate Certificate, you can choose to complete your studies after the first two units and exit with a University-accredited Professional Certificate.

  • What is a Professional Certificate?

    Professional Certificates are generally the first two units of a Graduate or Undergraduate Certificate and provide you with solid introductory knowledge, as well as contributing to the higher degree should you wish to continue studying later. Professional Certificates are a good way of upskilling quickly and providing you with an opportunity to start your education journey at a discounted fee.
  • Can I enrol in a Professional Certificate?

    Not exactly. The federal government is providing discounts for students who are enrolled in qualifications recognised by the Australian Qualification Framework. This means, to ensure you receive the discounted course fee, you need to enrol in at least a graduate certificate level qualification. If you only complete the first two units, Swinburne is ensuring that you still receive a qualification by awarding you a professional certificate.

  • What if I want to continue studying after 1 December 2020?

    You can.  If you wish to continue studying the course after 1 December 2020, you will be eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place for the rest of your studies.
