Green infrastructure proves that all spaces, even roofs and walls, can (and should) go green.

The Graduate Certificate in Green Infrastructure, the first course of its kind in Australia, will teach you how to use vegetation to improve urban environments for their residents.

You'll take cross-disciplinary approaches to the planning, design and management of green infrastructure to improve city environments, including urban trees, green roofs and walls, and water-sensitive urban design.

This course offers a great skills-development program for urban planners and managers, as well as new or established horticulturalists.

Study while you work

To accommodate your existing work commitments, all classes are delivered in an intensive format with online assessment elements.

Learn from a garden campus

You'll spend your time getting your hands dirty – literally – alongside horticulture experts at our beautiful Burnley campus and beyond.

At Burnley you’ll find heritage-listed gardens and state-of-the-art green roofs and walls, showcasing what’s possible in the green infrastructure world.

Keep it real

We build on theory, but our teaching focuses on real-world examples and case studies. We make sure you’ll leave the course with the practical knowledge and skills you’ll need to stage a green infrastructure revolution in your workplace.

This course is not available to international students who require a student visa to study in Australia.
