Progression through the VPHMgt program

This postgraduate program offers three nested award courses at Graduate Certificate (GradCertVPHMgt), Graduate Diploma (GradDipVPHMgt) and Masters (MVPHMgt) levels. These courses have common core units of study to facilitate progression through the program and transfer of candidature, from Graduate Certificate to Diploma or Masters levels. The flexible delivery of this program allows you to enrol in as few units of study as you need in order to make your study manageable. Students often take two years to complete the Masters degree, however the full degree can be taken over three or four years if necessary.

The GradCertVPHMgt can be taken in a maximum of 4 semesters, GradDipVPHMgt in a maximum of 6 and the MVPHMgt in a maximum of 8, except with permission of the Dean.

Following are some examples of how a student may choose to progress through the program.
