What does postgraduate mean?

Postgraduate programs of study are designed for students who have completed an undergraduate course (such as a Bachelor's degree) in a related area. Postgraduate courses include Graduate Certificates, Graduate Diplomas, Masters (by coursework or research) and Doctorates (PhD, DCA, DCR, DBA, EdD) and give students the opportunity to further their skills and qualifications in a particular area of specialisation. For more information, please see the UWS Research Degrees page.
