Overview

A non-degree course allows you to undertake undergraduate level study, for the purpose of continuing professional development or simply for interest. You will not accrue credit points towards a degree award, but you will be issued with a transcript outlining the units of study that you have undertaken.

If you wish to undertake one or more units of study for your own interest, or for other reasons, you may enrol in single units as a non-award student. Admission as a non-award student is assessed on an individual basis. Non-degree students pay full tuition fees to undertake a unit of study (subject) offered in the Faculty of Science without being enrolled in an award course (degree).

If you would like to apply for non-degree study, you should consult the Faculty of Science Handbook or Departmental/School websites to identify units of study in which you would like to enrol at the University of Sydney.
