What are Individual Units

Applicants may be approved to study units (subjects) on a fee-paying non-award basis in any study period, subject to places being available. Applicants must meet unit requirements and will be formally assessed in the units in which they enrol.

Accreditation Toward a Course

If the student subsequently applies for and is granted admission to a course at the University, units undertaken on a non-award basis and successfully completed may be credited to that course, subject to the Academic Regulations and the relevant course rules.

Units Including a Practical Component

Except with the approval of the Executive Dean, an applicant may not be offered a place on a non-award, cross-institutional or auditing basis in any professional experience unit or unit that includes a practical placement.
