Short Course Awards

The Australia Awards Short Course Awards are short courses tailored to develop knowledge and skills, address priority human resource development areas and build partnerships and linkages between Australian organisations and partner organisations in developing countries.

The short courses are designed to provide leaders and professionals from the public service, private sector and civil society in Papua New Guinea to study a short course with an Australian university, TAFE, or Registered Training Organisation (RTO).
