Graduate Certificate in Voice Studies
This course is designed to provide study and practice in voice for individuals who wish to follow a career in voice teaching. It is particularly likely to appeal to professionals who already have a knowledge and interest in the voice e.g. actors, directors, drama teachers and trained singers.
The program develops your skills in the practice of using voice, language and text in preparation for rehearsal and production in school and community settings or for your own professional context and development. You will critically examine and practice approaches suitable for working with the voice and speech in a variety of specialist environments.
By the end of the course you will have developed effective diagnostic tools for enhancing voice practice and have your own approach for working with the relationship between voice, speech and text.

A CSP is subsidised and students pay a contribution determined by the Australian Government. The number of CSPs available is reviewed annually by the University.
Australian Fee Places
If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.
Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.
The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.
Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.
If you have completed post-secondary study, you may be eligible for credit/advanced standing towards your studies at the University. Find out more.
