What is an Undergraduate Certificate?

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

The qualification was developed in response to community and industry need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic with the intention to help re-skill 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 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 can be issued an Undergraduate Certificate between May 2020 to 31 December 2021. The COAG Education and Skills Councils will decide whether the qualification should continue to be made available after that date. However, regardless of whether the Undergraduate Certificates becomes a permanent feature of the tertiary education system, Undergraduate Certificates that have been issued prior to this date will continue to be recognised as valid AQF qualifications.

Programming 1

Learn techniques for designing and implementing basic algorithms using Python so you can analyse large datasets and extract meaningful insights.

Database Systems

Learn how to use databases to store & retrieve data safely & efficiently.


Learn to create simple algorithms that allow you to mine data using Python - one of the most in-demand programming languages globally! It’s also the programming language of choice for the data industry. Here’s 3 reasons why:

  1. It’s simple syntax makes it easy to read, learn & use - so it’s ideal for data beginners.
  2. It’s faster to write code than some other programming languages.
  3. It’s multi-purpose nature means you can perform data processing, statistics, mathematics, machine learning & visualisation tasks with speed within the one environment.
