Don't have an undergraduate degree?

The good news is you don’t necessarily have to have an undergraduate degree to apply for postgrad study.

By combining your previous work experience and qualifications, you may be eligible to apply for a postgrad course without a bachelor’s degree.

Entry requirements will differ from course to course, but if you’re considering doing a tertiary degree it’s worth checking to see what you’re eligible for. You’ll find this under ‘Admission Requirements’ on the course page.




The biggest hurdle in pursuing a postgard degree may be the cost involved. But did you know you don’t necessarily have to pay upfront?

If you’ve completed an undergraduate degree you might be familiar with student HELP loans. The great news is these are also available for postgrad.

Rather than pay upfront, FEE-HELP loans let you take out a loan with the Government that you pay off through tax. This can sometimes be much easier than paying for your course upfront.

Some postgraduate degrees also provide Commonwealth Supported Places (CSPs), which means the Government subsidises your course fees. So, it’s worth shopping around to see which degrees provide CSPs as it can save you thousands in the long run.
