Graduate-entry masters

If you hold a bachelor degree, a graduate-entry master (GEM) course is a fast-track way for you to gain an entry-level qualification in a health profession.

GEM programs offer career-specific training at a postgraduate level to build on your undergraduate skills and knowledge. If you don’t have the prerequisites, our Health Sciences Graduate Entry Foundation Course can help you gain entry to certain GEM courses.

Some of our GEM courses are Commonwealth Supported, meaning you receive a subsidy from the Australian Government towards your unit(s) of study. For more information about fees, please visit our Fees website.

Why study a GEM program?

  • GEM courses give you the opportunity to hone, redirect or reimagine your career goals.
  • As a GEM graduate you’ll gain a master-level qualification, which can open up multiple possibilities for your professional life.
  • A number of our GEM courses are accredited and may allow you to work overseas.
