The Australian Government has allocated additional Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) to give additional options to students and the recently unemployed to undertake higher education, preparing our nation and workforce to move out of the economic downturn. It also enables Australians to retrain and upskill in priority areas such as health.
The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) is offering a selection of their graduate certificates with CSP under the government scheme. These certificates will commence on 19 April and must complete in Term four (ending December 2021) A graduate certificate is a full qualification at AQF level 8, but it can also provide a pathway to a Masters Degree in universities across Australia (subject to the entrance requirements of the university).
The number of available supported places is limited and does not cover graduate certificates or subjects that involve clinical placements. If places are exhausted for available specialisations, or if alternative specialisations or clinical experience is desired, eligible students can still apply for these graduate certificates at the domestic tuition fee rate.
