Applying for postgraduate study
If you want to further your career or want a completely different career, Flinders has a range of postgraduate courses to help you realise your full potential.
Many of its postgraduate courses are nested meaning if you enrol in a Masters and do not complete it – but do complete the nested Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma – you may exit with that qualification.
Most graduate entry bachelor degrees, graduate certificates and graduate diplomas require a three-year undergraduate degree from an Australian university or equivalent.
The normal minimum requirement for masters or PhD candidature is a four-year honours degree or equivalent, with Second Class Honours (2A) or better, or a coursework masters with a distinction average.
There are also minimum entry requirements for each course. But if you don’t meet the requirements you may be admitted (subject to specific conditions) at the discretion of the faculty offering the course.
