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.
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.

Please note the government have proposed changes to the funding of graduate courses. We will update our website if these changes come into effect.
