Apply for non-award

Apply for Non-award Studies OR Actuarial Control Cycle (ACST831, ACST832, ACST871)

Overview

Macquarie University's Non-award program allows students to enrol into individual units without the restriction of a degree. The program is suitable for students looking at studying for general interest or for professional purposes.

Eligibility

Applicants are required to have Australian Citizenship, have Australian permanent residency status or hold a valid visa which allows study in Australia. Whilst students in some visa categories (e.g. provisional spouse visa and other long term temporary visas) may be able to enrol on a Non-award basis, they will be limited to enrolment in no more than two units per session.

The only exceptions are students intending to enrol into ACST831, ACST832, ACST871 and BIOL345 where students are not required to reside in Australia during the duration of the course.
