Deakin news
19 September 2018

Deakin University is giving two alumni winners the opportunity to complete an online credential each valued at AU$495.  

Professional Practice credentials are a game-changer for your professional development because they recognise the skills and experience you already have. The credentialing process is entirely online and some even lead to a Deakin postgraduate degree credit.

Our credentials have been developed in consultation with industry experts and are aligned to international qualifications and skills frameworks meaning they are industry-relevant, globally recognised and tailored to put you ahead of the pack.
