Answer

What is postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study refers to university level courses undertaken by students who have significant work experience and/or completed a university level undergraduate degree. Postgraduate courses include graduate certificates, diplomas and masters degrees.

There are various pathways to a postgraduate program. It is possible in some instances to enrol in a university-level graduate certificate or graduate diploma on the basis of relevant employment or life experience. From here you can progress to a higher level postgraduate qualification such as a master by coursework on the basis of your success in these courses. 

To view these options,  or for more information see our Postgraduate by coursework and Higher degree by research webpages.
