      Delivery mode

      The Graduate Certificate in Managing Early Psychosis is delivered entirely online.

      Once enrolled, students are issued with a user name and password to access the University of Melbourne online learning management system, known as LMS. Here you can access all course materials and activities as well as being able to interact with course instructors and other students e.g. participating in discussion forums.

      The online facilitator is available online and responds to emails, checks discussion postings and monitors progress on discussion threads. Appointments can be made for telephone discussions via email.

      Applicants must ensure that the computer and device they use to access course materials and undertake assessment online are suitable. Check the system requirements and perform a system test.

      It is common for students to access course information from a range of computers and devices, and they must all be checked to ensure that they allow full functionality. In particular, hospital computer systems may have firewalls in place that do not allow full access and you should alert your IT administrator to these requirements well in advance of needing access using work based computers.


      Each subject is formally assessed to meet the requirements of University accreditation. Assessment is designed to be practical and relevant to industry professionals.
