Professional master degrees

Swinburne’s professional master degrees are designed for international students. They allow you to transition smoothly from the classroom to the workplace. 

These degrees aim to enhance graduate employability by preparing you for career advancement in Australia and internationally.

Career Success Program

The Career Success Program is a key feature of our professional master degrees. The program focuses on career planning and employment readiness, through a combination of activities and events that emphasise your professional development.

Swinburne has partnered with Raw Talent, a specialist career coaching and graduate placement management provider, to deliver the Career Success Program.

Personalised career coaching

As a professional master degree student, you will receive one-on-one career coaching. You will have the opportunity to design a career plan under the guidance of a career management specialist.

You will also be shown how to refine your CV and interview techniques to help you stand out from other job-seekers.

Employer networking

The Career Success Program includes a number of workshops and networking events throughout the duration of the professional master degree. These events will offer you an in-depth understanding of the Australian job market, the opportunity to build connections with prospective employers, and the chance to explore the different avenues that your career could take.

Industry project

The professional master industry projects are designed to provide you with meaningful professional experience. Selected students will be partnered with Australian and global employers (who operate in Melbourne) to work on a project that will add substantial experience to their CV.

If you do not participate in the Career Success Program, you will not be able to undertake the industry project.
