The GUC supports the delivery of a range of university programs in partnership with CQUniversity, the University of Southern Queensland and Curtin University. The higher education awards students studying at GUC achieve are offered and conferred by our university partners.
Courses delivered in mixed-mode (listed below) provide a blend of online curriculum, resources and activities together with face-to-face tutorials, laboratories and workshops provided by the GUC. Where relevant, practical placements are also organised by GUC for students within local organisations and industry.
The GUC supports CQUniversity’s STEPS bridging program to provide an alternative entrance pathway to university. STEPS qualifies students for entry to programs supported at GUC as well as some Perth universities.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people now have the opportunity to study the Curtin University, Centre for Aboriginal Studies (CAS) Indigenous Tertiary Enabling Course at the GUC.
