How you’ll study

Busy people enter our courses, which is why we design them to minimise the impact on your professional and personal life. Our Human Resource Management units combine face-to-face delivery with online study. This blended mode of study means you get the best of both worlds – in class, you’ll meet with real practitioners and debate your peers, while at home you’ll have the flexibility to balance study with your work and life commitments. You’ll also have the opportunity to attend some units at our industry partners’ premises.

Some AGSE electives are delivered in intensive mode, which means classes are taught in fully-catered day and half day blocks on Fridays, Saturdays and after hours.
