Customised programs

Custom Education (CE) is the University's multidisciplinary provider of professional and tailored education services for and in partnership with government and corporate clients.

Customised education programs

Organisational and professional development needs cannot always be met by traditional tertiary offerings with a single disciplinary focus and on-campus lecture-style delivery. Research, Innovation & Commercialisation (RIC), in partnership with the University's faculties and schools, develop customised professional development programs in many areas of professional and technical education to meet your specific development needs. Visit the UoM Commerical website  to view a list of programs on offer and to register.

Professional development or formal qualifications

You can customise your program solely as a professional development course or as a formal, graduate qualification from the University of Melbourne. A formal qualification can also give your staff credit towards other tertiary study. Whatever you choose, your tailored program will meet the University's strict quality and academic integrity requirements.

Flexible design and delivery

We work with organisations and professionals to design programs that combine academic expertise from a wide range of disciplines. As a result, our programs are unique and highly specialised.

The traditional mode of studying on-campus may not suit geographically dispersed workforces and project teams, full and part-time working arrangements, or other specialist professional training. We work with you to deliver programs nationally and internationally using a variety of methods that respond to your organisational needs.

Relevant and applied training

University of Melbourne academic staff lead our courses, often presenting in collaboration with partner organisations and industry experts. This combination of academic research, thought leadership and the integration of organisation and industry experience ensures the material is current and relevant in organisational contexts.

To reinforce learning and professional development, we design assessment based on your organisational projects and using your organisation's data.
