Non-Award Study

Non-award study refers to undertaking a course that doesn't count towards a particular program.

Why study non-award?

To 'Test the Water'

Non-award study is a great way to get a feel for university study. Unlike applying to study an undergraduate degree, you do not:

  • have to apply through SATAC
  • take a Special Tertiarty Admissions Test (STAT)
  • require any formal schooling qualifications.
To Gain Entry into University

If you complete four courses as a non-award student you may apply for admission to an undergraduate program, through SATAC, based on the results of your grades as opposed to sitting a STAT test. You can also count the non-award study (up to 22 units) as credit towards your undergraduate program, where applicable.

For Interest

You do not have to intend to complete a program to undertake non-award study. You may undertake courses according to your interests without ever applying for a place in a program.

For Professional Development or Further Study

If you have completed previous tertiary study you can choose to undertake non-award studies in any area of the Humanities and Social Sciences for personal or professional development. If you already have a Bachelor Degree you may undertake non-award studies to satisfy the requirements for entry into Honours or another postgraduate qualification.

How do I enrol in Non Award Study?

Once you have chosen what course you would like to study non-award from the Course Planner, simply download the relevant forms through the University's Non Award Enrolment site.
