A postgraduate coursework degree (Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, Postgraduate Diploma, Master) is useful for:

  • Enhancing your qualifications to advance your career
  • Enabling a new career direction
  • Allowing you to specialise in a particular area
  • The opportunity to learn through lectures, tutorials and practical subjects

Deciding to study a postgraduate degree means considering several factors about your career, life and interests.

The discipline-specific Career Guides, available at Where Your Degree Can Lead, will enable you to explore career pathways related to your discipline. Research the range of postgraduate study options available, both at Curtin and across Australia.

The Postgraduate study page from Graduate Careers Australia (GCA) can help you decide if postgraduate study is a worthwhile investment for your career. The annual Postgraduate Destinations Report, also from GCA, provides a detailed examination of the outcomes of recent Australian resident postgraduates, focusing on employment status, further study status, job search methods and broad types of work.
