Graduate study FAQ’s

What is graduate study?

Graduate study can consist of a graduate certificate (4 units); graduate diploma (8 units); master’s by coursework (12 units); or a master’s or PhD by research.

A Monash graduate degree will give you the edge in the employment market by providing you with leadership, entrepreneurial and commercialisation skills that will advance your career.

What’s involved?

There are two ways to study for a graduate degree – by coursework or by research. Graduate study by coursework involves studying a series of subjects (units), in a similar style to your undergraduate study. Conversely, graduate study by research involves extensive, independent research under an expert academic supervisor. Much of your time is used writing a thesis that makes a positive impact to knowledge in your chosen field.

What are the entry requirements?

Entry requirements vary depending on your preferred course, but generally speaking, an undergraduate degree with a high WAM (weighted average mark) is a standard entry requirement. Some courses require you to have studied a related undergraduate degree, but others accept applicants from unrelated disciplines. All entry requirements are listed on individual course entries on our find-a-course page.

What are the benefits of graduate study?

There are many benefits of completing graduate study, including:

  • Higher income. The median starting salary for someone who has completed graduate study is $86,000 (government sector) and $82,000 (private sector)*
  • Higher level of employability. In 2015, 81.9% of graduates students had found full-time work*
  • Expanded career prospects. Whether you’re taking the next step in your career or changing your path entirely, upgrading your qualification will open up new opportunities
  • Invaluable network development
  • Lifelong skill sets that employers value. The nature of graduate study means that students learn transferable skills including teamwork and self-management. These skills can be applied to your career no matter what industry you’re in**
