Overview

Many of the units of study offered in the postgraduate coursework programs can also be taken on a single unit, non-award basis.

For more information and to apply for non-award enrolment, please contact the faculty. Non-award unit fees are calculated in proportion to the fixed fee applicable at the time for a full-time load.

Non-award unit selection is subject to availability and therefore may not be offered in all sessions advertised in the faculty handbook.
