Postgraduate study showcased at expo
With recent research revealing the median salary of coursework masters graduates is more than 50 per cent greater than the average weekly wage*, the University of Newcastle will host an expo showcasing postgraduate study options.
Tomorrow (Tuesday), the Postgraduate Study Expo in Newcastle will showcase almost 90 postgraduate study options offered by the University of Newcastle for 2011.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic and Global Relations), Professor Kevin McConkey, said flexibility underpinned the University’s comprehensive postgraduate offerings.
“People undertaking postgraduate study often juggle work, family and a variety of other commitments. Our postgraduate courses aim to accommodate the competing demands that might hinder a return to study.
“The University offers postgraduate study across the full spectrum from single subjects to entire degrees, and there is the option of studying face-to-face at our Newcastle, Central Coast or Sydney campuses, online or via distance education.”
The University is one of the leading suppliers of online postgraduate coursework in Australia. More than 3,000 students from over 60 countries have studied via GradSchool.com.au
At the Expo, lecturers will be on-hand to talk with prospective students and provide advice about flexible study options.
