  • Pre-masters courses develop advanced knowledge and skills in academic writing, research, critical thinking and intercultural communication to successfully undertake postgraduate study at CDU.

    Students who successfully complete the Masters Preparation Program or Masters Qualifying Program gain direct entry to specific postgraduate programs at CDU. The articulation table below includes additional requirements for some programs. Please contact CDU International College if you have any questions about a pathway to a particular postgraduate program.

    List of Postgraduate Programs

    International Masters Preparation Program (MPP) 

    Students with a Bachelor degree from their home country are academically ready for postgraduate study in Australia but may require additional support with their English language skills.

    The Masters Preparation Program (MPP) prepares these students to meet the entry criteria for masters programs at CDU by developing advanced skills in academic writing, research, critical thinking and inter cultural communication. In one semester, students gain a deep understanding of the demands of postgraduate study and learn the processes, expectations and methods for success before their English-language masters program begins.

    International Masters Qualifying Program (MQP) 

    This program has two options, Standard (2 semesters) or Accelerated (1 semester). 

    International students who have already completed three years of post-secondary school study in their home country but may require additional support with their English language skills can now transition into a Charles Darwin University masters program in one or two semesters through a combination of discipline-specific subjects with English language support. Students get a deep understanding of the demands of postgraduate study and learn the processes, expectations and methods for success before their masters program begins.
