About this course

Special Note: This Masters course has been approved by the Department of Social Services for student income support payments (i. e. Youth Allowance (Student), Austudy, ABSTUDY and the Pensioner Education Supplement).

This is a specialised Masters degree course in Economic Geology specifically designed for industry and government geologists. It is the nucleus of the postgraduate teaching program at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Ore Deposits (CODES) and forms part of the National Minerals Geoscience Masters Program. The course is usually only offered on a part-time, external basis. Only students that can provide evidence of financial and logistical support, and provide a research proposal will be considered for full-time admission. Students that are considering taking the course on a full-time basis must contact the program co-ordinator, Dr Rob Scott to discuss their plans.

Entry requirements

Bachelor of Science with Honours is the normal entry qualification. However, for students without this qualification the entry requirements will depend on whether the applicants come from a professional industry background.

Applicants from industry without a Bachelor of Science with Honours degree will require the following:

  • Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Science (Applied); and
  • A minimum of two years' experience working as a professional geologist in industry or a government institution.

Minerals Geoscience Masters (MGM) students from JCU and UWA wishing to enrol in UTAS units (KEA707 - KEA712) must complete a cross-institutional application form.
