At KBS, our postgraduate starting salaries are approximately 20% higher than the sector average**, meaning graduating with a master’s degree will place you in an excellent position to kick-start or advance your career.
So now you know the steps, let’s take a closer look at the potential value of a postgraduate preparation program.
Here are two pathways available from an Advanced Diploma, Associate Degree or equivalent, to your postgraduate studies:
1. Complete a bachelor’s degree – Depending on your current progress, this may require a minimum of 12 more subjects over 5 trimesters (1 year, 8 months) at a tuition fee of $2,250 per subject.
2. Postgraduate Qualifying Program – 5 more subjects over 1 trimester (4 months) at a tuition fee of $1,500 per subject.
Note: The tuition fees listed above are in Australian dollars and are based on the tuition fees for international students commencing in 2020.
As you can see, taking the opportunity to bridge the gap with a Postgraduate Qualifying Program can save you time and money, and may just be the stepping stone you were looking for to a master’s degree.

* If you hold an Advanced Diploma, Associate Degree or equivalent, you may be eligible for subject exemptions, thereby reducing your course duration and tuition fee. The information above is based on the typical study duration, maximum number of subject exemptions and 2020 international student tuition fee of a Bachelor of Business at Kaplan Business School. For more information, please refer to our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) policy.
