Postgraduate coursework units
The following list of postgraduate units should be used in conjunction with your course map to view which units you can choose. Students are responsible for selecting units which meet the regulations and requirements for their course. Your choice of units depends on your course, the specialisation and credit you may have been granted. If you would like to contact the Faculty for assistance with your unit selection or to check your course enrolment, please request a course progression check.
All of our postgraduate units below run in 'flexible' mode. Flexible mode offers students face-to-face teaching sessions (optional, if seeking to study exclusively online) to support self-directed learning activities and assessment. For timetable details, you can access the Monash Timetable online or log into your my.Monash portal and click on the timetable link.
The Faculty reserves the right to cancel or reschedule classes if necessary.
