Course overview

Deakin University's single (non-award) unit program provides the general public with access to a wide variety of tertiary levels units. If you are interested in personal or professional development within the health and behavioural area, the single unit method of study can offer new opportunities for following your interests. Some units have prerequisites or special requirements, but most are open to all.

A non-award unit is a unit which does not lead to an award but which is a unit of study from an award course or courses at Deakin University and may be counted as credit towards an award course at Deakin subject to entry to an award course and approval by the Faculty Board. 

Students interested in an enrolment of this type should contact Deakin International (refer to contact details in the contacts section of this page).

If admitted to any of these units, students must complete all administrative and academic requirements and examinations in order to obtain formal acknowledgement that they have completed all requirements of the unit.

The University is required to charge fees for single (non-award) unit enrolments.

Professional recognition

Students undertaking study for the purpose of professional recognition should note that such recognition is the prerogative of the professional body.  It is the responsibility of the student to check that the units offered by the University are recognised by the relevant professional organisation.

Fees and charges

The University is required to charge fees for single subject non-award unit enrolments. Single subject non-award unit fees are trimester based and cover full tuition costs. The cost of each unit depends on the government classified area of study the unit belongs to. Single subject non-award unit students are not eligible for financial assistance from Centrelink, university loans or other grants. If fees are to be paid by an employer or the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE), a letter from the employer stating this arrangement must accompany the application form.


A single subject non-award unit is not Commonwealth supported and therefore students are not eligible for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP.

How to apply

For single subject non-award study please apply online via the Applicant Portal. You can apply for multiple units in one trimester on the same application. However, if you apply for a unit in one trimester, then wish to pursue study in another trimester, you are required to submit another online application.


To choose a unit to suit you, read the student handbooks (new window) for comprehensive unit descriptions, trimester and mode availability (on or off campus), prerequisites, credit point value and assessment details.


Approval for enrolment is dependent on the availability of places after Commonwealth supported students have been enrolled in the unit/s. Once enrolled, you have the privileges and responsibilities of a student at Deakin, and an invoice for any fees payable will be forwarded to you.
