15. Units Studied on a Non-Award Basis

15.1 Admission to study individual units on a non-award basis

Subject to a place being available and to approval by the Head of School, the Admissions Officer may admit an applicant to study a maximum of two units on a fee-paying non-award basis in any study period. Applicants must meet unit requirements and their enrolment will be subject to all the provisions of the Academic Regulations. A student enrolled on this basis will be formally assessed in the units in which he/she is enrolled. If the student subsequently applies for and is granted admission to a course at the University, units successfully completed on a non-award basis may be credited to that course, subject to the Academic Regulations and the relevant course rules.

15.2 Admission to undertake cross-institutional studies

Subject to a place being available and to approval by the Head of School, the Admissions Officer may admit an applicant to study one or more units as a cross-institutional student, for credit towards an award of another institution. Cross-institutional students must meet unit prerequisites and their enrolment will be subject to all the provisions of the Academic Regulations. A student enrolled on this basis will be formally assessed in the units in which he/she is enrolled.

15.3 Auditing units

Subject to a place being available, a Head of School may permit an applicant to audit one or more units for a prescribed fee. Students who wish to have an audited unit assessed must, by the prescribed date apply to undertake the unit on a non-award basis, comply with enrolment procedures and pay the remaining tuition fee. The Academic Regulations and course rules will apply to any subsequent application for credit.

15.4 Units including a practical component

Except with the approval of the Dean, an applicant may not be offered a place on a non-award, cross-institutional or auditing basis in any professional experience unit or unit that includes a practical placement.
