Non-Award and Cross Institutional Study for Incoming Students

What is Non-Award and Cross-Institutional Study?

Non-award study refers to enrolment in individual courses that do not count towards a whole degree. For example, you may choose to complete a course out of personal interest, professional development or to upgrade your skills or knowledge in a specific area.

This type of study is not Commonwealth-supported. If you are a domestic student you will pay full fees for the courses you take. International students will pay international student fees. Please note that the ANU will not issue an Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCOE) for non-award study. You must already hold a visa that allows you to study in Australia.

You can find out how much each course will cost by searching the Programs & Courses website.

Cross-institutional study refers to enrolment in courses for credit towards a degree at another Australian University in which you are currently enrolled. For example, you may like to complete a course at ANU and have it count towards the completion of your degree at your home university.

You may only study courses at the same academic level in which you are enrolled at your home university.
For domestic students this type of study may be commonwealth-supported if you have a commonwealth-supported place (CSP) at your home institution.
