Your postgraduate pathway is waiting at UWA Open Day

Are you considering elevating or even changing your career with postgraduate study? From flexible study options to affordability, career outcomes and tailored advice, here's a glimpse of what you’ll find at UWA Open Day on Sunday, 17 March 2024.  


Work while you study: 

If you’ve wondered whether taking on additional study while working is possible, the answer is, yes. Even with a busy schedule, you can tailor your study to work around your life. Whether you're balancing work or family commitments, Open Day is the place to learn about UWA's flexible study options first hand, you can also hear more at the Discover Postgraduate Study information session. 

Costs and affordability: 

If you’re looking for ways to make postgrad study more affordable, there are several options to reduce costs. If you have previous qualifications, ‘Recognition of Prior Learning’ can reduce the length of your course (and therefore the cost). If your study is related to your employment, you could be eligible for tax deductions, or your employer may be open to a ‘professional development proposal’ to share course costs.   

You can also apply for a scholarship to help cover the costs.  There are scholarships for everything from academic and sporting excellence, to leadership, and social impact, as well as for women, Indigenous students, regional students and scholarships for students experiencing challenges. Find out important information on eligibility and how to apply for scholarships from our friendly Future Students team at Open Day Central on Riley Oval. 

Take your career to the next level: 

Postgraduate study is more than earning a degree - it's about preparing for the next phase in your career and unlocking new avenues.  At UWA Open Day, you can gain first hand insights into the career outcomes in your chosen field and opportunities available to postgraduate students throughout your degree such as industry workshops or work integrated learning units. Come and chat to us at the Careers Discovery Hub. 

Get advice on your postgraduate pathway:
