Postgraduate courses

Become a science leader

Further education in the sciences will set you apart and take your career to the next level. You will join one of Australia’s largest postgraduate communities and a global network of leading thinkers.

Science postgraduate coursework 

After completing your bachelor’s or Honours degree you may wish to pursue further studies. There are several different postgraduate coursework options you can elect to undertake, from short courses, Graduate Diplomas and Certificates to a Master’s degree. 

Why study a science postgraduate course?

To become a specialist in your field, several disciplines within the Faculty of Science require additional study to give you the qualifications and accreditation to practice at the highest level in Australia. This is the case for a career in clinical psychology, veterinary medicine, nutrition and dietetics or medical physics for example.

Our degrees by coursework include areas like animal and human health, psychology, sustainability, agriculture and environment as well as mathematical sciences. Each degree will give you greater understanding and exposure to your chosen area, with research, practical and industry components, helping you to become a more employable graduate.

As a student in the sciences you will have access to the latest research facilities and specialist equipment across several campuses and dedicated research centres – all located in one of the world’s most liveable cities.

We attract world-renowned researchers, competitive research funding and prestigious international prizes. We are also home to numerous centres of excellence and multidisciplinary research hubs that are recognised as leaders in the field.

Our alumni have changed the face of global science and continue to inform national and worldwide science and health agendas.
