Postgraduate study options

We offer a wide range of postgraduate programmes, including doctorates, honours and masters degrees, in addition to many graduate and postgraduate diplomas and certificates.

Postgraduate courses for the programmes


A course is the basic component of all academic programmes and are the specific topics that you study. Most courses are taught and assessed over one semester and may consist of lectures and tutorials, assignments, tests and an examination. Each course has its own alphanumeric code for identification. Some postgraduate courses are offered online, whereas others are timetabled for campus attendance.
