USQ Relationship

ASTRA Group Services and the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) have proudly established a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ to allow individuals completing accredited training programs delivered by ASTRA to have direct entry pathways into a range of graduate programs run by the University’s Centre for Professional Studies Faculty Of Business, Education, Law And Arts.

The Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies is ideally suited to those candidates from a vocational education background, focusing on the actual duties and undertakings of the student in the workplace. This means that the qualification gained has both academic credibility and practical application at the student’s place of work. The professional studies program places a significant emphasis on the experience of the student acknowledging that many find themselves unfairly excluded from university studies due to a lack of formal tertiary qualifications’.

 Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) may even reduce the amount of effort and time to achieve the qualification. Completion of  the Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies will facilitate direct entry into the Master of Professional Studies program. 

For those wishing to undertake research into an area of professional interest, Doctoral studies are also an option.

Contact the training team at ASTRA to discuss your training path and how this partnership can benefit you.
