Postgraduate Qualifying Program

NN-PQP Postgraduate Sydney CRICOS code: 0101744

The Postgraduate Qualifying Program (PQP) prepares international students who do not meet Swinburne’s English language and/or academic entry requirements to undertake postgraduate study at Swinburne Sydney.

Successful completion of the program offers guaranteed entry into the Master of Information Technology, Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Data Science courses at Swinburne Sydney.

By combining English language training and academic studies, students are equipped with the skills they need to succeed in postgraduate study.


If you’re an international student living outside Australia, you can currently only study this course online from your home country. Before applying, please make sure you meet the minimum English language entry requirements (we now accept some take-home English tests).
