The Capstone experience
Each degree entails a combination of compulsory and elective coursework, combining core disciplinary knowledge with broader professional skills relevant to high-level employment.
Finally, your course concludes with a Capstone experience – an opportunity to apply your learning to a specific policy issue through a professional internship, an independent research project, or a supervised research thesis that would qualify for PhD admission.
Recognition of prior learning
Use your previous tertiary qualifications and relevant professional experience to qualify for advanced standing. This means you could complete a Masters degree in as little as 12 or 18 months.
Enrolments open from mid-May for mid-year intake, and mid-November each year for the following year. You should enrol in all your units as soon as you can so you are fully prepared for the semester and don't miss out on any information. You can make changes and add units online through MyInfo up until the end of the second week of each semester – provided that classes for the unit in which you wish to enrol have not commenced, in which case approval from the Unit Coordinator is required. Unit Coordinator approval is required for all unit enrolment after the second week of semester. If approval is not sought, the School Dean or Academic Chair may cancel your enrolment in that unit.
It is in your best interest to enrol in your units by the start of the semester, irrespective of when classes start, to ensure you are eligible for Fee Help. Students enrolling after the census date will not be eligible for Fee Help.
