Programme highlights

Take the first step in your tertiary study.

This six month qualification will provide you with a broad knowledge base and help you move on to other study programmes in more specialised areas of business or communication. The practical group-based activities will develop your personal and team skills – skills employers look for.

If you are undecided in your future study path, this certificate is a great way to try two key spheres of business before committing to an area of focus that you know you will enjoy.

The Certificate can be taken either full-time or part-time and is well suited to school leavers, mature learners returning to study or those seeking a career change and looking to update their skills.
