A Macquarie University spokeswoman said it was finalising a range of Higher Education Certificate courses in areas including engineering, IT, biotechnology, environment, health and science at sub-bachelor, bachelor and postgraduate levels.

“Upon finishing their short course, students will be able to enrol in either a sub-bachelor diploma, bachelor degree, postgraduate diploma or masters degree depending on the certificate they completed,” she said.
