Keep abreast of the latest developments in statistical analysis by enrolling in one of our short courses or single units of study.

Choose a short course program (non-assessable), designed to expand and update your skills, or a single unit of study (assessable) which may be credited to your degree.

Our short courses are ideal for researchers in any area, especially health, market, business or social research, or current research students who need to add to their qualifications or stay up to date with the latest techniques and technology.

Our teaching emphasises practical application, so what you study will be of immediate use in your current work.

Courses and single units of study

Many of our degree units run once a week over a semester. Research students and others are welcome to enrol in a single unit or selected topics. If you choose to be assessed, you may be able to credit the unit to other degree study.
