Postgraduate Courses

Postgraduate Coursework 

Coursework programs have the majority of their requirements met through completion of face-to-face classroom 'taught' subjects.  Assessment may be based on a combination of written assignments, presentations, formal examinations, class participation or practical exercises.

There are three types of postgraduate coursework degrees: 

  • Masters by Coursework (1 - 2 years)
  • Graduate Diploma (1 year)
  • Graduate Certificate (6 months) 

UOW courses are recognised internationally and in Australia through accreditation by professional organisations.

To search for all courses by study area:

  • Go to CourseFinder to see what postgraduate courses are offered at UOW
  • Download the international postgraduate course guide

Details of entry requirements, intakes and fees for all courses can be accessed through the CourseFinder entry for each course.

Most postgraduate courses are taught on campus and require full-time study and attendance.

A number of postgraduate coursework programs in Education are also available via distance education.  Go to CourseFinder and select 'DISTANCE EDUCATION' under "Delivery Mode" in the options.
