Apply for a postgraduate coursework degree

If you want to further your career or want a completely different career, we have a range of postgraduate courses to help you realise your full potential.

Many of our 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.

Overseas qualifications need to be equivalent to the above to be considered for entry.

Apply for postgraduate coursework at Flinders through the South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC).

Make sure you meet the entry requirements for the course you want to study.


The following coursework degrees have separate application processes.

Important dates for postgraduate admissions are course-specific.

Use SATAC’s course search to check individual course entries for information on important dates. You will find information on commencement date options, relevant closing date(s) for applications, and the timing of offers.
