What is an Undergraduate Certificate?

The Undergraduate Certificate is a higher education qualification, formally recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

The qualification was developed in response to community and industry need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic with the intention to help reskill people in the most in-demand areas - which include programming and data.

Undergraduate Certificates are accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA).

The Undergraduate Certificate is a higher education qualification of six months' duration covered by an existing higher education qualification at AQF levels 5, 6, or 7. Course content is to be drawn from an existing higher education qualification, to ensure students have the option to transition to the AQF level 5, 6 or 7 qualification on completion of the Undergraduate Certificate.

Students who successfully complete an Undergraduate Certificate with Coder Academy can take an AQF approved pathway into a Bachelor of IT. We offer two Bachelor of IT programs through our Academy of Information Technology (AIT) courses – the Bachelor of IT (Mobile Applications Development) and the Bachelor of IT (Games Programming).
