Science Postgraduate Non-Degree

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

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.

You should only enrol in postgraduate non-degree study if the subjects you wish to study are at postgraduate level (ie. 4XXX level or higher).

Please note, postgraduate non-degree study is advisable only after consultation with the unit coordinator.
