A single course of study is one subject of a Griffith degree

Completing a single course study is an excellent admission pathway option that allows you to:

  • pursue a range of professional or personal interests
  • develop your skills and knowledge in a specialist area
  • meet accreditation requirements for registration with a professional body
  • contribute to your vocational and personal development
  • take the first step to applying for an undergraduate or postgraduate program.

Gaining a Selection Rank

Successfully completing a minimum of two single courses (subjects) of study can provide you with a Selection Rank for admission into an undergraduate program, as well as meet the Griffith English subject prerequisite. You may also be eligible to apply for credit transfer for the courses you successfully complete.

Meeting subject prerequisites

In some cases, a single course of study can be undertaken to fulfil subject prerequisites for admission into Griffith undergraduate degrees.

Professional accreditation requirements.

Griffith does not assess qualifications for accreditation or registration purposes. Assessment of your current qualifications and eligibility must be undertaken by the related professional body.

Bridging study for overseas trained professionals

Griffith does not assess qualifications for accreditation or registration purposes. Assessment of your current qualifications and eligibility must be undertaken by the relevant Australian accreditation or professional body.

Following assessment of your qualifications, you can submit an application if you are required to undertake additional single units of tertiary study. A certified copy of the formal assessment is required to be attached to your application. It is your responsibility to obtain confirmation from the relevant professional body that the nominated single units of study comply with their accreditation or registration requirements.

Fees

As a student who is studying a single course, you are required to pay tuition fees. You are not eligible for a HELP loan, except in the case of bridging study for overseas-trained professionals.

As an overseas-trained professional undertaking a bridging course, you will be able to access FEE-HELP if:

  • your study is listed on your assessment statement; and
  • you are an Australian citizen or Permanent resident; and
  • you will be resident in Australia for the duration of the unit (course); and
  • the bridging study is being done on a non-award basis; and
  • the bridging study does not constitute more than one EFTSL (generally one year of full-time study).

The tuition fees for Undergraduate courses taken as miscellaneous study can be calculated using the Fee Calculator.

Fee calculator

The tuition fees for Postgraduate courses taken as miscellaneous study are charged per credit point according to a student's enrolment in the teaching period at the census date. You will be charged the tuition fee, applicable to the academic program that the course belongs to, for the year in which you are studying. If the course you are undertaking belongs to multiple programs, the lowest fee category will apply.
