Short Course Options at VELiM
Our short courses will appeal to:
- Clinicians and other professionals working in health-related fields for the purposes of professional development or continuing education,
- Early career researchers and PhD candidates who wish to develop their experience, skills and knowledge required for future research endeavours, and
- Experienced researchers interested in advancing their career or moving into new research or methodological areas.
You can either enrol as a non-award student which will allow you to count the credit obtained from the successful completion of a unit of study towards one of our university degrees*; or you can enrol as a professional development student which - upon successful completion - will provide you with a Certificate of attendance but no credit towards a University of Sydney degree. The differences between the two enrolment options are outlined in the table below.
*: Must be claimed within five years of completing the unit of study.
