The program draws together subjects from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music's existing degree programs, and may be taken part-time or full-time. Subjects completed towards the Graduate Certificate in Music may later be credited towards the Graduate Diploma in Music, which may be used as a prerequisite to masters level degree programs at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music.
