Traditional graduate courses in Australia have been based around the notion that people will take 1-2 years out of the workforce to study full-time, reaping the benefit of this additional study in either building their current career opportunities or using new credentials to change careers. They were often supported by employers who expected to have many more years of benefit from the additional skills brought to them by their employees.

What are the implications of this for universities, particularly in post-professional educational offerings?
