Flexible Study Options

We appreciate the importance of flexible learning so we have created degrees that offer multiple modes of delivery.

As competition for jobs increases, graduates need to stand out from the crowd. We give you a competitive advantage through a range of stimulating experiences that will count towards your degree.

  • Modes of Study

    Intensive (face-to-face)

    The intensive mode of delivery is based on-campus in Adelaide. There are no regular weekly classes, instead you will attend a two or three full-day opening and closing session per course.

    Assessment items are completed throughout the duration of each course, these consist of assignments, group work, online discussions and possibly an exam.

    Courses are offered in intensive mode and consist of three day opening and closing sessions along with the assessment items listed above. If you are a school leaver you will study some courses offered by other Schools, and these courses may not be available in intensive mode.

    As always, our Program Advisors are only too happy to help guide you through these options.

    Courses are offered in intensive mode and consist of two day opening and closing sessions along with the assessment items listed above.

    Flexible Entry and Exit points

    We understand that studying any degree full-time can be a big commitment. If you are unsure about committing to a full Masters degree, you can choose to begin with a six month full-time Graduate Certificate or a 12 month full-time Graduate Diploma. Similarly, you can exit the Masters with a Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma.

  • Applied Learning Opportunities

    Traditionally University study involves a set number of courses which are offered face to face on campus where you attend weekly lectures and tutorials, concluding with an exam at the end of each semester.

    To set yourself apart from other graduates, we offer you the opportunity to participate in experiences that will see you interact with business and industry professionals and learn from their expertise. This is possible through participation in opportunities outside of the class room.

    Australian eChallenge

    The Australian eChallenge has stimulated entrepreneurship in Australia since 2001.

    Run by the Entrepreneurship, Commercialisation and Innovation Centre, The Australian eChallenge is South Australia's premier student business planning competition.

    It is based around the development and submission of a comprehensive strategic business plan for the development of an early stage entrepreneurial venture.

    You will pitch your business idea to panels of potential investors from the local business community, whilst also receiving support and guidance on developing your business idea.

    If you are a Bachelor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Master of Applied Innovation and Entrepreneurship or Master of Applied Project Management student, the Australian eChallenge can be studied as a 3 unit course. This means that you can participate in the competition, go in the running to win cash and prizes, and have your involvement academically recognised.


    The ThIncLab Commercialisation Accelerator aims to assist our students to commercialise research innovations.

    This involves engaging in a comprehensive blended learning program to help you develop a strategic business plan to establish a new venture, often enabling you to take your research innovations to market.

    The ThIncLab is open to all University of Adelaide Higher Degrees Research (HDR) and Postgraduate coursework students. If you are looking to commercialise aspects of your studies and to learn the skills that will help you take your innovation forward and develop it into a commercially viable business, we encourage you to apply.

    The Program is delivered using a combination of non-traditional learning and teaching styles, combining online training, face-to-face workshops, hands-on support, mentoring,  presentations, and further business incubation support services.

    Adelaide Advantage

    The Adelaide Advantage is a program that encourages you to engage in, and gain recognition for co-curricular activities that will increase your employment opportunities after graduation.

    Co-curricular activities available include overseas study tours, volunteer opportunities, internships, careers workshops, networking opportunities and much more.

    The program allows you to either register to participate in individual activities, or you can take it as a full 1 semester course, giving you 3 units of credit towards your degree.

    Study Tours

    Study tours offer you a wonderful opportunity to develop skills and knowledge in your degree area whilst travelling to exciting destinations throughout the world.

    Study tours are typically 3-4 weeks long and held during summer or winter school. This allows you to fit in a study tour around your other courses. You also will receive a level of course credit, which is dependent upon which study tour you participate in.
