The Graduate Certificate in Science (Aquaculture) is an 18-unit program comprising only coursework offered by the College of Science and Engineering. The Graduate Certificate is built within the 36-unit Graduate Diploma in Science (Aquaculture) and the 72-unit Master of Science (Aquaculture) and the sequentially developed topics allow progression through the two or three awards.
Applicants must normally hold a degree in any relevant discipline of science or equivalent qualification from an approved tertiary institution. The Dean (Education) may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.
