Graduate study options

We offer a wide variety of graduate study programs, from coursework-based professional entry degrees to make you 'job ready' and professional development degrees to advance your knowledge in your chosen field, through to research degrees that place you at the cutting edge of your discipline.

Coursework degrees involve structured classes, lectures and tutorials. Classes may be available during the day, in the evenings, or via weekend intensive sessions for some subjects. Coursework degrees may also involve a minor research thesis component.

Research degrees require completing a major thesis involving original research, undertaken independently under the supervision of one of our leading academics.


We’ll be running information sessions on a number of key areas to give you the chance to hear more about the courses and issues that are important to you. Staff will be present to answer any questions after each session. Registrations are essential, click the session titles below to register.
