Frequently asked questions
What is a postgraduate degree?
A postgraduate degree typically refers to certain degrees you are only eligible to study at the completion of an undergraduate degree.
There are three different postgraduate study options to consider. You can choose to enhance your knowledge with a graduate certificate or graduate diploma or you can give yourself a competitive edge with a high-level master degree.
How long does it take to complete a postgraduate degree?
You can complete a postgraduate qualification in as little as six months. For full-time study, typically a graduate certificate takes six months, a graduate diploma one year and master degree two years.
Most postgraduate degrees can be completed part-time as well, so you can fit study in around your work, family and social commitments.
Does my postgraduate degree need to be in a similar study area to my undergraduate degree?
No. Your postgraduate degree can focus on something completely different to your undergraduate degree (although some courses may have certain undergraduate prerequisites) to diversify your skillset and increase your employability across a broader breadth of roles and industries.
Alternatively, you can choose a degree that will build on the knowledge you acquired in your bachelor's degree to deepen your existing knowledge and enhance your specialist competencies.
Who can apply for a postgraduate degree?
Entry to a postgraduate degree usually requires the completion of an undergraduate degree or relevant work and life experience and knowledge.
