This program is designed to enable graduates to pursue further studies in an area of personal interest, for professional development, or as a pathway to higher degree research, by studying a number of graduate level units. Whilst completing their major, students are able to tailor a program of study to suit their interests by enrolling in units within the one subject area, or selecting units from a range of subject areas.


96 credit points (equivalent to 16 standard units) including one Major/Area of Study, and a choice of elective units. Dissertation, research and reading units may only be undertaken within the same area of study as the nominated Major. Mandatory intensive schools may be a requirement of some of the units in this course. A student's program of study and credit points for completion are determined by the qualification used as the basis for admission.
