Answer

What is the difference between postgraduate coursework and research programs?

Postgraduate coursework programs have a set study plan structure. Students are required to complete all required assignments or assessments to pass the units on their study plans.

Postgraduate research qualifications are awarded following the completion of a major thesis, involving independent original research under the supervision of a senior academic.
