Bachelor's - your first degree
Undergraduate studies, also known as Bachelor's degrees, usually take around three years, although the length may vary depending on the course.
Most students begin an undergraduate degree as soon as they have completed high school, but some apply after a gap year (one academic year commonly taken off study between high school and tertiary education) or much later, applying as mature age students.
Postgraduate - Master's by Coursework
Further studies through coursework are usually towards gaining a Master's degree in a discipline similar to your first degree, although, provided you meet any academic criteria, your postgraduate degree may be in a different field.
Further studies through research can also lead to a Master's degree or to a PhD or Doctorate.
To gain a research degree, you must meet language and academic requirements and find a suitable La Trobe University supervisor.
