Postgraduate Study

Want an exceptional student experience?
Our postgraduate research students receive a world-class education from a university ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world.

Postgraduate coursework degrees are skill and practical based, and are based primarily around lectures and tutorials. A University of Adelaide coursework degree can help you gain those extra qualifications you need for work, or help propel your career in an entirely new direction.

Masters, Graduate Diploma and Graduate Certificate study can be undertaken in a range of discipline areas:

Postgraduate research degrees are specialised and research-intensive, and based more around one-on-one interactions with a supervisor.

Our higher degrees by research will help you to make an impact in your chosen field of study.

If you are interested in becoming part of this rich research environment, further information about postgraduate research is available on our research degrees website. Find out about the research projects available in each of our schools and contact the relevant postgraduate coordinators about any research interests you might have in a particular area.
