Single-unit study

The application process for single units of study varies depending on whether you are enrolling in a semester-length or intensive unit, and whether you are taking the unit with or without assessment.  

The closing dates for our units of study are listed below. Late applications may be considered. However, some units may have restricted class sizes and compulsory units may run early in the semester. We strongly recommend you submit your application on time to avoid disappointment. 

Closing dates

Semester length units

  • Semester 1: 31 January
  • Semester 2: 30 June

Intensive units

We accept applications for enrolment in the University of Sydney Law School intensive units all year round.  


Application process and fees

Required documentation

Supporting documents submitted to the University of Sydney must be official documents uploaded with the application. Please refer to document submission guidelines.

The key documents you need to submit include:

  • Official academic transcripts of all qualifications held. The transcripts must contain all final semester grades, grading information and the course completion/conferral date(s). If the transcripts are not in English, please provide official translated transcripts in addition to the official transcript.

  • Statement of relevant experience
  • English language proficiency test result (if applicable).

How to apply

  • Special group rates are available for five or more enrolments in one single unit from one firm. 

We accept online registrations paid via credit card (Visa and Mastercard).

Please note: you will not receive a formal University of Sydney grade or academic transcript or credit towards any future award courses if you complete a unit without assessment. Course completion can be counted as CPD or MCLE points only. Class sizes are limited and students enrolled in a degree program receive preference if classes become fully subscribed.

For further information on single unit study without assessment including registration and group rates please contact Carla Viola.
