  • Research Masters: consists of at least two-thirds research with a substantial thesis, which is often externally assessed. Entry normally requires a Bachelor Degree (Honours) or Masters preliminary year, a research-based Graduate Diploma or equivalent research experience.

  • Professional Masters: may consist of a work-based project. Entry requires a relevant qualification and professional experience, or extensive relevant professional experience.
