Top Masters in Australia 2019

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

After earning a bachelor’s degree, many students decide to increase their experience and education by pursuing a Master. A Master may take about two years to earn, and there are programs offered in many different areas so that students can find an emphasis that works for them and their goals.

 

Australia has seven of the top 100 institution of higher learning in the world! Australia sits above the likes of Germany, the Netherlands and Japan, placing eighth in the Universitas 2012 U21 Ranking of National Higher Education Systems.
