Introducing Opportunity Unlimited

The world might be on hold, but your future isn’t.

To help address the challenges of COVID-19 and in response to the Australian Government’s Higher Education Relief Package, ACU has developed Opportunity Unlimited; a suite of short course and professional learning opportunities to help you upskill or retrain, and to support people and services transitioning to new ways of working.

Designed to build key skills in a wide range of areas – Opportunity Unlimited is your path towards a new future in a changing world.

Please note, these courses are available to domestic students only.

Subsidised short courses

The Australian Government is providing support for people to retrain or upskill during COVID-19. In response, we are offering a range of undergraduate and postgraduate certificates at a reduced fee, allowing you to gain practical skills and knowledge in areas of high demand.

These short courses will also help you gain entry into, and credit towards, a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at ACU. These six-month short courses run from June – December 2020. Your fees will be subsidised if you commence the course in June and complete it by December 2020.

Challenge accepted

As the world responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are witnessing a radical readjustment to many aspects of our society. While disasters hold a mirror up to our world as it is, they also challenge our concepts of normality – they invite us to make the impossible possible.

We have seen devastation and tragedy. But we have also seen hope and unity. We have seen borders closed. But we have also seen global collaboration unlike any time in history.

The future won’t be defined by pandemic and disaster, but by education and humanity.

This is history in the making. A challenge for us all, and to be met together.

Short courses

We’ve launched a range of short courses and we’ll be adding more throughout the year and into the future. Each course is comprised of four units and helps you gain entry into, and earn credit towards, a range of ACU degrees. These fee-subsidised six-month short courses run from June – December 2020.
