The Postgraduate Qualifying Pathway is for International students who require (or would benefit from) additional undergraduate study in English before entry to a USC postgraduate coursework qualification.
This non-award pathway is part of a packaged offer with a USC masters degree, and is available to specifically identified students.
Students complete 48 units (four courses). Courses are determined by the discipline focus of the masters degree in which enrolment is sought (eg business, education, health, information and communication technology, or social science), and by course availability in the semester of study.
Completion of a recognised Bachelor degree or equivalent and eligibility for admission to a USC masters degree upon successful completion of the qualifying pathway.
