Arts Postgraduate Non-award

The information on this page applies to future students. Current students should refer to their faculty handbooks for course information.

Non-award or non-degree study at postgraduate level allows you to build on your knowledge and skills as a graduate, exploring new areas of study, achieving professional development KPIs, or retaining your academic interest in a favourite subject. You'll be attending all classes for your Unit or Units of Study with students enrolled toward the completion of a postgraduate degree, diploma or certificate, and your results and grades will be formally recorded on your academic record. Postgraduate non-award study is a popular pathway to enter a postgraduate course of study later when you can apply for credit for your non-award results and grades to be counted toward your degree requirements.

Students who wish to undertake one or more units of study (subjects) for their own interest but not towards a degree, may enroll in single units as a non-award student.

All units listed under Postgraduate Coursework Table of Units of Study are available to non-award students. For information regarding fees of a particular unit, please refer to the Sydney University units of study database.
