Much like the Bachelor of Arts with Honours, students who have completed a BA in Te Tumu and have graduated can elect to do a year of advanced coursework. This fourth year of study in Māori Studies, Pacific Islands Studies or Indigenous Development enables students to hone their research and writing skills, including the writing of a 20,000 word research dissertation where students are required to complete a research project of their own choice. This enables you to demonstrate to prospective employers that you have key analytical and written skills.

The Postgraduate Diploma in Arts Subjects (PGDipArts) requires two semesters of full-time, or its equivalent in part-time, study. It entails a structured programme of postgraduate coursework and, in some instances, a piece of supervised research that counts for one or two of the required papers. The normal admission requirement is a completed Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in the major subject(s) of the proposed programme.
