  • Coursework Qualifications

    There are a number of different types of Postgraduate Coursework qualifications available.

    Masters by Coursework | Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate | Professional Certificate

    Masters by Coursework (full-time: 1-2 years)

    A Masters by Coursework degree is defined as a program of study that has a coursework component of two thirds or more. It provides the opportunity to master a specific field of study or professional practice through a combination of coursework and research.

    Graduate Diploma (1 year) or Graduate Certificate (1/2 year)

    Graduate Diplomas and Certificates are coursework awards offered by many areas in the University. They may provide a professional qualification or they may be of an introductory nature, providing a pathway for further studies in a particular area.

    Professional Certificate (1/2 year)

    Professional Certificates are short academic degrees available in many specialist disciplines that may articulate with other awards. The qualification covers a wide range of specialised needs ranging from initial and ongoing professional development to preparation for further postgraduate study.

  • Nested Qualifications

    Postgraduate degrees within the same discipline area are often nested (or articulated), enabling a seamless progression from one qualification to the next.

    For example, if you complete a Graduate Certificate, you may receive full credit for that qualification toward the appropriate Graduate Diploma.

    Or, if you enrol in a Master's but do not complete that degree - but do complete the nested Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma - you may exit with the lower degree.
