2023 Postgraduate courses

Explore all the Postgraduate courses available in 2023

Enrolling in an approved research methods course is a prerequisite for students to enrol in postgraduate research (a dissertation or thesis). Students must enrol in EDUCSW 700 or/and EDUC 787. The research methods courses previously available to postgraduate students are now all replaced by EDUCSW 700 and EDUC 787. In 2023, EDUC 787 will be renamed to Māori and Indigenous Research (previously Researching Māori Education) to reflect a larger focus on Indigenous research.
