Courses Offered by the Graduate School of Government

Since October 2003, the Graduate School of Government (GSG) has progressively offered a range of unique Sydney programs and courses specially tailored to meet the needs of the NSW Government.

The centrepiece of the school's courses are developed in conjunction with the government partners. These GSG courses:

  • meets the government's particular education and training requirements;
  • is aimed at potential and existing Senior Executives, those from within the Senior Officers range and personnel at the top end of the Government's graded structure;
  • provides the opportunity for progression into the Master of Public Administration.

All of the GSG's academic programs and courses are developed through Sydney University's rigorous quality assurance processes, culminating in their approval by the University's Graduate Studies Committee, Academic Board and ultimately the Senate.

GSG at the Univeristy of Sydney is a partner of the Australian and New Zealand School of Government's (ANZSOG) Executive Master of Public Administration. This two year program offers courses in public administration to students at the Senior Executive level of the public sector.

GSG also provides short term Executive Programs for politicians and public sector employees from Australian and international governments.
