Non-award Study

If you want to keep your knowledge and skills current without taking on a course that leads to a degree or have a personal interest in an area of study, you can enrol in a non-award single unit.

Units completed as a non-award single unit of study may be eligible for credit towards a degree, should you decide to apply for a qualification at Avondale.

Non-award single units are charged per unit of study and paid in full before the relevant census date. The amount charged depends on the unit. Students studying non-award units are not eligible for FEE-HELP or Commonwealth supported places (CSP), including HECS-HELP.

  • Enrolment is on the provision that there are sufficient places available in the course and that the enrolment does not preclude a student in an Avondale award program from enrolling in the course.
  • A non-award student will not be permitted to enrol in more than 24 credit points in any academic year.
  • Non-award enrolment into a course may be permitted provided that the student has appropriate educational qualifications, satisfies the minimum English language requirement, and has met the pre-requisites (if applicable).
