Victoria offers Master’s degrees in more than 100 specialist subjects. Many Master's programs can be completed in one year.
Master’s by coursework
This involves a combination of coursework—attending lectures and classes, completing assignments, and individual research. Some may be more coursework-focused and others more research-led.
Master’s by research
Studying by research provides an opportunity for independent study, free from the constraints of attending timetabled lectures and classes. Students work with a supervisor to present an original piece of research in the form of a thesis.
