Postgraduate Coursework

As a Postgraduate student at UNSW you will benefit from our flexible degree structures, the number and diversity of course options, our leading researchers and academics, industry links and numerous scholarship opportunities. We offer a range of distance education and offshore programs.

Postgraduate coursework students undertake units of study rather than research work, usually through lectures and tutorials. You can choose from a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or Masters Degree.

Once you've found a degree you'd like to complete, check the entry requirements, key dates and fees information, then follow the instructions on how to apply.
