Postgraduate options at Sydney
Single units of study
We offer a range of units of study, each of which may be ideal for professional development or to explore subjects of general interest. If you subsequently enrol in an award course, it may be possible to credit these units towards a formal qualification.
Graduate certificates are intended for people who want to undertake a short academic training course to further their career, or to sample further study. They typically require six months of full-time study.
Graduate diplomas are normally based on master’s programs but require less time commitment. They are an excellent option for students who do not want to commit to a full master’s, but still need a solid grounding in their chosen field. They typically require one year of full-time study.
Master’s programs are ideal for graduates who need specialised knowledge and skills that will help them take the next step in their career or develop academic expertise. They typically require between one and two years of full-time study.
PhD and research
A research degree requires in-depth study in a specialised area. A research student undertakes a major thesis, supervised by a staff member. It is usually possible to upgrade from the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), provided satisfactory progress is made in the first year.
