Postgraduate courses

Postgraduate study falls broadly into two categories: Coursework and Research. Postgraduate Coursework Degrees are structured similarly to undergraduate courses, with specified subjects and learning outcomes, whereas Research Degrees consist of in-depth study and research that makes a significant and original contribution to new knowledge.

Coursework Degrees are offered in all disciplines and often have flexible study options to suit busy lifestyles. JCU’s Coursework Masters Degrees are designed to develop advanced knowledge and skills, usually with the goal of career advancement. They can build on previous study, existing professional qualifications, or offer new employment opportunities.

Postgraduate students at JCU are taught by world-class academics who share their extensive knowledge to enhance learning experiences.

Given our research strengths, if you are planning research studies with us, your supervisor is likely to be internationally recognised in their field.
