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?
