Planning your postgraduate course

Here you’ll find information about planning your postgraduate studies with us, including a number of important factors you’ll need to consider when making key decisions about your course.

Meeting your course requirements

It’s important that you’re familiar with the requirements for your course, as well as any specialisations or streams you might be interested in completing.

Our masters coursework degrees consist of foundation studies, core and elective units, and a capstone industry or research project. You can check your course structure in the University Handbook and use a course map to plan ahead.

Postgraduate course options

You can tailor your postgraduate course to match your area of interest, whether it’s data science, business intelligence, enterprise systems, mobile and distributed systems, networks and cybersecurity, multimedia, social informatics, librarianship, archives, or recordkeeping. And if your interests extend beyond IT, you can study units from other faculties, too.

Our postgraduate study options include:

  • graduate certificates and diplomas
  • masters by coursework
  • master of philosophy (MPhil)
  • doctor of philosophy (PhD).
