As someone who was familiar with the not-for-profit sector, the field of social impact was a new concept for me, but resonated really well. The Graduate Certificate in Social Impact gave me a whirl-wind tour, and a thirst to learn more. This course provides a really good foundation and understanding of the concepts of social impact, and is a great resource base of knowledge, tools and networks to further your career in the field.

As a result of studying social impact, I felt I had the knowledge base to be able to apply for, and provide a meaningful contribution to, the Business Development and Strategy team in a not-for-profit organisation.”
