Working Professionals

If your work experience is less than 5 years and you have not completed an Undergraduate degree, refer to our Mature Age Entry checklist.

If you are applying as an international student, you need to apply direct to the University. The Western Sydney University International website has further information about living and studying in Australia.

Working Professionals Checklist:

1. Search the courses available by looking through the Postgraduate areas of study:

If you have significant work experience and an Undergraduate degree, search for the Graduate Diplomas and Masters courses available. If your work experience is over 5 years, you may be eligible for a Postgraduate degree - search through the Graduate Certificates available.

2. Consider the course fees - Postgraduate course fees vary depending on the course and study load of the student. Information on Postgraduate course fees is available on the Current Students Fees page.

If the course you are interested in is has Commonwealth Supported Places available (see the spreadsheet available at Current Students Fees), information on student contribution amounts and payment options for prospective students is available at the external Study Assist website (opens in a new window). 

4. Attend Events - The Postgraduate Information Evening is held in October each year and prospective students are invited to find out more about our courses, speak one on one with Academic staff members and speak with the Admissions team about applications. The University Events page has more information about this event and you are able to register online.

5. Find out about Student Life. Navigate the Student Life pages to find out about the support services that are available to current students; the facilities that we have and examples of current student experiences.

Once you have all the information you need - you are ready to apply online to the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) (opens in a new window). On the UAC site, select 'I'm a Postgraduate' then Apply.

Always remember, if you have any questions on courses, how to apply or events, call the Course Information Centre on 1300 897 669 or email
