Postgraduate study levels and options

A postgraduate diploma is usually one year of full-time study (120 points), NZQF Level 8. It may include research project or can be normally completed by coursework only. This postgraduate diploma can be used as a standalone qualification to develop further skills and expertise in your specific field. It can be counted as the first year of some two-years Master’s research degrees.

A Master’s degree offered by Victoria University of Wellington has two types of study at Master’s level—by coursework or by thesis.

A Master’s degree by coursework is 1 to 1.5 years full-time course work (180 points), NZQF Level 9. It may include work placements, research projects or a small thesis. It can be a pathway into a new study area in some subjects—look for entry requirements that allow for previous undergraduate study in any subject. Under exceptional circumstances, it can lead you to PhD.

A Master’s degree by thesis is a one year of full-time research (120 points) taken after you’ve completed a one-year Bachelor with Honours or postgraduate diploma (120 points) OR two years of full-time study (one year of coursework, one year of research, 240 points), NZQF Level 9. It is an independent study with no timetabled lectures or classes. Some students take longer than 1 year to complete their thesis. Master’s degree students will work with a supervisor to present a piece of original research in the form of a thesis.

A PhD or other doctoral degree is normally carried out over a minimum of three full-time years, NZQF Level 10. Students will prepare a substantial thesis that represents original research in an approved topic with support from two supervisors.
