Domestic graduate coursework applications

Graduate coursework programs are undertaken by someone who has completed an undergraduate degree or obtained significant relevant professional experience. Graduate programs include graduate certificates, graduate diplomas and master programs.


Entry requirements to graduate programs vary, depending on the program and discipline. All applicants must meet English language requirements.

If you do not meet the entry requirements for a masters program, you may be offered entry to the affiliated graduate certificate.  On successful completion of the graduate certificate with appropriate results, it may be possible to progress to the masters program.
