Noerh Ryde. Uni adopts new degree

Macquarie University has announced it will adopt a new postgraduate degree structure from 2013, making it the first Australian university to fully align with European, North Americans and Asian qualifications. The Academic Senate voted in favour of a new research training masters degree consistent with the well-known ‘Bologna model’. Deputy vice-chancellor (research), Professor Jim Piper, said that the new model demonstrates a commitment to research excellence, with the university offering a two-year masters degree as the standard pathway to PhD study, providing a more intensive research experience for students before beginning doctoral study.
