What’s next for you?

Join us for the Final Assessment course.

Taking this course will give you the opportunity to have your learning experience with us throughout the program formally recognised by Australian universities.

If you join us for the assessment course, we’ll walk you through the process of ensuring that your research proposal is robust, that your methodology is sound and that, in short, you have developed a viable plan for a research project that will get real results.

You will then submit your plan, at which point it will be assessed by experts in your field. The experts will provide useful and comprehensive feedback.

If their assessment is that your plan is viable, you will be provided with documentation that explains that your work has been assessed and meets Australian Qualification Framework standards at a master’s degree level.

This will effectively allow you to apply for credit for prior learning at any Australian University. There are a long lists of master’s courses at Deakin University and Griffith University that have already made a commitment to honour your learning throughout this course by rewarding you with credit.

In summary, if you join the next course and successfully pass assessment, the program will be recognised as a unit of study that counts towards your master’s degree.

We hope to see you there.
