The Graduate Certificate of Information Technology is an exit award for students undertaking the Master of Information Technology, Master of Information Technology (Professional) or Master of Information Technology (Advanced).

Study a Language
All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.
International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.
This is an exit award only so there is no direct admission.
The Graduate Certificate in Information Technology program is not an accredited program. Students seeking ACS membership should consult the Program Convenor and the Australian Computer Society about their proposed study with regard to the requirements needed for ACS membership.
