Domestic Applications - ANU Postgraduate Coursework

Semester 2 2021 applications now open

ANU has a lot to offer for postgraduate students. If you already hold a Bachelor Degree, you are ready to apply for postgraduate study.

A postgraduate degree is designed to deepen your knowledge, expand your skills, and equip you for a successful career in your field.

ANU postgraduate coursework programs include Master Degrees, along with a range of Graduate Certificates and Graduate Diplomas. Some coursework programs may involve a research component or large project.

Semester 2 applications will close on 12 July 2021 for most programs. Different sessions may have different application deadlines. Please refer to the relevant program page for details.

SHORT COURSES: ANU is offering a number of discounted short courses in 2021. Visit the discounted short courses website for more information.

Advice to help

Step 2: Apply

You will need to submit your application through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).

Applications generally take between 4-6 weeks to assess.

You can list up to six preferences on your application, however in some cases you may only receive one offer. This offer will be to the highest ANU preference that you list, as long as you’re eligible. So when you submit your application, remember to list your programs in the order in which you would like to receive an offer.

Already completed your Bachelor Degree?

If you graduated from an Australian university, UAC will be able to access your results in most cases. However, you may be asked to provide transcripts or other documentation, so it is a good idea to prepare your records just in case.

Still completing your Bachelor Degree?

You can still apply before you complete your Bachelor Degree if you are in your final year, and you must advise UAC in your application. You may need to provide a copy of your academic transcript directly to UAC as soon as you complete your degree. UAC will provide instructions during the application process.
