Course details

Graduate Certificate in Science
NZQF Level 7

About the course

Study a new subject and enhance your career prospects by completing a 60-point Graduate Certificate in Science (GCertSc). You can specialise in one area, or you can explore an interdisciplinary pathway and take courses from a range of subjects.

If you are already working in an industry, the GCertSc is a great way to enhance your knowledge of the most recent developments in your area of interest.

The GCertSc can be completed in one trimester when studied full time, or in up to two years if you’re studying part time. Some people may also need to do preparatory studies, which will make their study take longer.

The GCertSc also prepares you for studying programmes at postgraduate level, such as the Bachelor of Science with Honours or the Master of Science.

Entry requirements

A Bachelor's degree or equivalent.
