The Postgraduate Certificate, also known as Graduate Certificate (Grad.Cert.) is a specialised postgraduate qualification. Postgrad. Cert. can be equivalent to a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree depending on the country in which you study it. Graduate schools offer Postgrad.Cert. programmes in almost any discipline and they usually take one year of full-time study to complete.
Postgraduate Certificates are ideal for people who already have work experience and want to advance their careers, but don’t have time for a Master’s degree. To graduate, students need to pass each course with a specific grade. Some Grad.Cert. courses also include internship placements.
Universities and colleges offer Grad.Cert. courses both individually and as part of a Master’s degree. In the UK, for example, a Postgraduate Certificate is equivalent to a Bachelor’s qualification, but it’s much shorter and generally only available for disciplines like Psychology, Law, Management, etc.
In Ireland or the United States, a Postgrad.Cert. is equal to a Master’s qualification. Both in Canada and the US, a Postgraduate Certificate can also be one of the requirements for graduating a Master’s programme.
