PhD courses

During the course of your PhD study programme, you are required to complete PhD courses or similar subject elements totalling approximately 30 ECTS credits.

The Graduate School of Health offers a range of courses covering both scientific and generic subjects. As a supplement, you are welcome to attend external PhD courses (including transferable skills courses at AU).

Learn more about our range of graduate school courses, and how to sign up.

You are also welcome to suggest a new course to the graduate school.


Please note, the mandatory study elements must be completed when you are actively enrolled. This means, you cannot include courses or get courses approved if they are taken during leave from the PhD study or completed after enrolment end date.   

When the Graduate School of Health contacts you it is always signed officially and attachments to emails is always either Word, Excel or PDF documents.
