  • Where a candidate has not completed their undergraduate qualification at the UoM and then completes a Masters qualification at the UoM, the individual will not be eligible.

Do you accept international students?

Unfortunately we are unable to accept international students due to the eligibility requirement of Australian or New Zealand Citizens and permanent residents.
