Benefits for postgraduates
Professional Practice credentials are a smarter way to get ahead in your postgraduate study.
Postgraduate study can boost your career opportunities
A postgraduate course can further your skills and knowledge in your chosen field. Employers value that experience and often entrust postgraduate-qualified employees with greater responsibilities. In fact, in some fields a postgraduate qualification is the only way into certain positions or levels within a career. An MBA, for example, may advance your career in business in ways that nothing else can.

Professional Practice degrees
Deakin University’s Professional Practice degrees are made up of a number of Professional Practice credentials and traditional online units of study. They offer an innovative approach to earning a postgraduate degree while you work – saving you both time and money.
Professional Practice degrees are designed for experienced professionals who are looking for formal recognition of the extensive experience, skills and knowledge they’ve gained through their line of work. These professionals may either have no formal qualifications, or an undergraduate degree that’s no longer relevant to their field of practice.
If you’re a professional with extensive experience and knowledge in your field, a Professional Practice degree can help you gain a professionally recognised qualification which, in turn, can lead to you furthering your career.
Whatever your aim, credentials can help you get there
With Deakin’s range of employability, leadership and technical knowledge credentials, you can get ahead in your postgraduate study.
