Whether you are contemplating the next step in your career, moving to a new career, or simply hoping to consolidate your experience with a qualification, a postgraduate degree can give you a competitive edge.

What are the benefits of postgraduate study?

Postgraduate study can be a big investment, but it is an investment worth making. A 2014 Graduate Careers Australia study showed that the median full-time salary for people with a postgraduate qualification is $18,000-$30,000 higher than for those with an undergraduate degree alone.

Postgraduate students at The University of Tasmania benefit from:

  • attending one of Australia's leading universities for postgraduate study offering an innovative teaching and research culture in which to learn
  • access to the facilities of one of Australia's premier research intensive universities providing the opportunity to conduct investigative work across a vast array of fields
  • a choice of over 200 programs and courses leading to nationally and internationally recognised qualifications
  • the flexibility to undertake coursework programs at Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or Masters level, or to undertake Honours or Research programs
