Honours and Postgraduate study

Build upon your knowledge, skills, and existing qualifications across Arts, Law and Education.

Make the most of your degree and advance your career

Whether a return to study or your plan since day one, our Postgraduate programs offer a range of learning options that enable you to develop expertise through the choice of personal, professional or specialist coursework study and research.

With over 40 possible areas of study, and cross-disciplinary options to explore, our postgraduates have the opportunity to further enhance their study experience with industry placements, or, in some cases, go on exchange with international partners, or undertake an immersive study experience overseas.

Study options

Our courses offer the flexibility to study online or on campus, to your own schedule whether full time or part time (one or more units per semester), and options to undertake study out of traditional semester periods. Our study options work with you, your family, your career, and your lifestyle.
