Graduate and Postgraduate Applications

Entry Requirements

Check if you meet the entrance requirements to the graduate or postgraduate qualification you are intending to study by looking on the Qualifications pages. You will also need to meet UC's English Language Requirements and if you have not studied at a NZ university before you will need to check you meet University Entrance requirements

Planning Your Study

If you are intending to study a graduate or postgraduate qualification with a research component, you will need to find a supervisor. Your supervisor will work closely with you for the period of your research (2-4 years) so it's important to find someone you feel comfortable working with. The UC Research Profile is a good place to start. Find someone who share your research interests, and think about what you need from them - eg. do you want to work independently or meet with them regularly to keep you on track? Arrange a meeting to discuss expectations, research ideas and availability. 

If you are intending to study a taught-only qualification (with no research component) you may want to speak to the Department Postgraduate Coordinator or a Student Advisor. You can talk through which courses you would like to take and how you will structure your study. 

When to Apply

Check whether there is an application closing date for admission to the particular qualification you are interested in. If you need to apply for admission to the University, please submit your application at least 6 months before your intended start date.  You should also check the Key Course Dates for the last date to accept your Enrolment Offer. 

How to Apply 

Apply to Enrol via myUC - follow the steps on the Enrolment Process page. You may also need to complete an additional Application for Admission to the programme you are interested in.
