Single unit study with assessment

If you are seeking individual units of study as accreditation towards a degree (where you will need to complete formal assessment tasks) then you should apply for single unit study with assessment.

If you successfully complete the units and their assessments, you can count them towards a full degree such as a graduate diploma or master's by coursework, if you subsequently apply for entry into a degree program.


The cost is $4012.50 per unit of study.
