At USQ, we understand the importance of keeping your knowledge and skills up-to-date, especially if you are looking to upskill or re-skill. That’s why we offer a range of professional development ‘single courses’ that provide you with access to our educational resources, lecturers, and facilities, without the commitment of a full degree.

  • Throughout the year, there are over 700 courses to choose from. Check out our courses in:
    • Business & Commerce
    • Creative Arts & Media
    • Education
    • Engineering & Built Environment
    • Health & Community
    • Humanities & Communication
    • Information Technology
    • Law & Justice
    • Sciences - Computational
    • Sciences - Lab-Based.
  • Each course is a ‘bite-sized’ experience, with most courses taking just 1 Semester (6 months).
  • Our single courses are perfect if you are looking to upskill in a particular area, need to satisfy professional development requirements, want to refresh your current skills, would like to explore a passion or are looking for a taste of uni life.
  • It is your opportunity to continue into a USQ degree provided you meet the programme’s entry requirements.
