The Graduate Certificate in Academic Foundations (GCAF) offers international students a pathway to further learning in coursework master's degrees initially in the Faculty of Business, Government and Law and the Faculty of Science and Technology (other Faculties may decide to use this pathway later). It is designed for students who have not met the direct entry into coursework Master course academic requirements. It would also be available to domestic students, if required, who gain entry to Master programs based on work experience and have no experience of higher education studies. The GCAF gives students the opportunity to develop and systematically apply academic literacies and research skills in the English language academic environment, and specialised theoretical and technical knowledge in their chosen fields of study or practice. The GCAF requires one semester of full time study.
