What is Single Unit Study?
If you're interested in studying a specific subject without undertaking a full degree, you can enrol in single unit study (non-award) . You study only the unit/s you want to learn without the need to complete course requirements or take on a full course load.
Examples of single unit study may include:
- A language you've always wanted to learn
- A period of history you're interested in
- A business unit relevant to your career
- An update of your computer skills
- An insight into global politics
- An overview of the way media channels work
- An update on education principles
Whether you're looking to learn for personal interest or you plan to step up to a full course later on, Single Unit Study gives you the flexibility and control to explore what matters to you.
What you need to know about Single Unit Study
Most units offered at UNE are available for Single Unit Study on a full-fee basis. You can study Single Units on campus or online in any of the three Trimesters, but you will need to ensure that you have the required knowledge for any advanced classes.
As a non-degree student, you will have the same high level of teaching and support that has earned UNE a consistent five star rating in the Good Universities Guide.
Units completed as Single Unit Study may be eligible for Advanced Standing credit later, should you decide to apply for a further qualification with UNE.
