Step 1 of 8

Choose your program

Postgraduate coursework

Whether you want to build on your expertise, enhance your promotion potential or change careers, there's a UQ program to help you achieve your goals.

Each of our programs has a program page that lists everything you need to know before applying.

As you step through the admissions process, you'll need to refer to program pages for specific information. It's a good idea to keep these pages open as you work through each step.

Understanding your options

Our postgraduate coursework programs include:

  • graduate certificates (1 full-time semester of study)
  • graduate diplomas (1 full-time year of study)
  • master's by coursework (1 to 3 full-time years of study)
  • some professional doctorates (3 to 4 full-time years of study).

In some disciplines we offer 'program suites', which begin at graduate certificate level and progress to master's level or beyond. Most program suites provide flexible entry and exit points. There are usually different entry requirements for each program in a suite.

We also offer some master's programs at multiple durations, depending on the level and relevance of your previous studies. Check the entry requirements to find the one that's most suited to your background.
