Postgraduate coursework units

The following list of postgraduate units should be used in conjunction with your course map to view which units you can choose. Students are responsible for selecting units which meet the regulations and requirements for their course. Your choice of units depends on your course, the specialisation and credit you may have been granted. If you would like to contact the Faculty for assistance with your unit selection or to check your course enrolment, please request a course progression check.

All of our postgraduate units below run in 'flexible' mode. Flexible mode offers students face-to-face teaching sessions (optional, if seeking to study exclusively online) to support self-directed learning activities and assessment. For timetable details, you can access the Monash Timetable online or log into your my.Monash portal and click on the timetable link.

The Faculty reserves the right to cancel or reschedule classes if necessary.

Notes:

  1. The Depth Units column is only relevant to the Master of Teaching students. Please see the Depth units page for further explanation.
  2. Students who may be eligible to apply to take up a Research Pathway to lead into a Higher Degree Research course would select the units EDF5613 and EDF5614 as the final two units in their course. Before selecting these units, please check that your course map makes provision for these units and ensure that the mark attained in each unit completed so far in your course is 65% or higher. All students who enrol in these units will be automatically checked off by our staff to ensure they qualify, and only allowed to continue if eligible.
