The Centre for Continuing Education (CCE) hosts non-award professional short courses and micro-credentials on behalf of ANU colleges and institutes. We are also the home of the ANU community courses for those wishing to study Asian or European languages, develop some artistic skills or learn about history, culture or philosophy.

Professional Learning

CCE provides the hosting platform for a diverse range of professional learning / executive education short courses. Each of these is developed using the vast knowledge and experience of world-leading academics from ANU colleges, institutes and schools. So if you are looking for some training or up-skilling as part of a professional development plan, please visit our professional learning page or contact us today.



CCE also hosts micro-credentials on behalf of ANU. These are similar to professional learning short courses but carry the additional benefit of accreditation. On successful completion of an ANU micro-credential, participants receive a digital badge containing all of the metadata linked to the completed learning and assessment. This metadata may then be used for subsequent applications for credit against mainstream graduate-level programs. All ANU micro-credentials are delivered at graduate level. See listings and find out more HERE.


Community Courses

CCE has delivered short community courses for more than 50 years and this tradition continues today. Offerings span Asian and European languages, art and history/culture/ philosophy. This diverse program offers something of interest to most and is a great way to continue the journey of lifelong learning.
