Requirements & prerequisites

Most of our postgraduate courses require you to have completed an undergraduate degree, however, in some instances, evidence of relevant work experience may be sufficient.

Entry requirements vary from course to course, so for specific details, search for your intended course. Remember, entry requirements are minimum requirements for a course and the qualifications and experience of past candidates have usually exceeded these.

English language requirement

Regardless of what you choose to study, Curtin requires you to demonstrate competency in English. For other qualifications that meet our English competence requirement, please refer to the list of approved English qualifications for postgraduate courses, or refer to the table below:
