Graduate Coursework

Graduate coursework qualifications provide you with specialised knowledge which can give you an advantage in furthering your career. Study at this level enables you to upgrade your qualifications, enrol in professional development courses, change careers or explore one subject at a time.
Graduate coursework generally results in the awarding of a Masters degree, a Graduate Diploma, or a Graduate Certificate. Each of these awards require different standards and quantities of work.

The major component of coursework programs is attendance at lectures and tutorials, and submitting assessment items, such as essays and assignments.
Some coursework programs may also involve a research component, where students work with the assistance of supervisors on a more substantial project which involves the submission of a thesis as part of the assessment.
