Get a head start on career development with short courses at Griffith College

With industries being disrupted and transformed like never before, now’s the perfect time to gain new skills and qualifications that open up fresh career opportunities.

Right now, the Australian Government is heavily subsidising a limited number of short courses, to retrain and up-skill Australian workers for sectors where growth and demand is set to be strongest.

These programs are subsidised by a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) and have been accredited by TEQSA. You will only pay the student contribution (remaining amount) of the unit fees after the government subsidy has been applied. You must be eligible for CSP. To support workers recently displaced by the COVID19 crisis, the cost to study short, online courses at universities and private providers will be discounted considerably to help Australians retrain.

Better still, with HECS-HELP available on all these courses, you can study now, and pay later.

The new courses will be up and running in June 2020, through a newly-developed Digital Campus platform that lets you study and connect with staff and students online, wherever you want.

Move fast - places are strictly limited, trimester 2 commences 29 June*.
