Faculty of Science

Coursework

Whether you are a UWA graduate, or have completed your undergraduate studies at another institution, the Faculty of Science has a postgraduate coursework degree for you.

Our degrees will enhance your existing qualifications and open up new career opportunities, by allowing you to specialise in a particular scientific field. Many have Commonwealth Supported Places and/or HECS-HELP).

As a postgraduate student completing a coursework degree, you will undertake a selection of advanced study units, often with practical work or projects. A research component can also be involved, such as a project or written dissertation.

We also offer combined research and coursework degrees, such as the Master of Science (thesis and coursework), as well as higher degrees by research.

It is possible to complete some master's by coursework and  master's by coursework and dissertation degrees within 1.5 years if you have previously completed an undergraduate degree in a cognate (related) area.
