International students who have already completed three years of post-secondary study in their home country but find their English language level a barrier to postgraduate study in Australia can now smoothly transition into a highly regarded English-language 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.
