Cross institutional enrolment

If you're enrolled in a degree program at another recognised tertiary institution and want to study single, postgraduate units in clinical pharmacy, pharmacy practice or wound care with us, you can apply to enrol on a cross-institutional basis.

Cross-institutional enrolments don't count toward a Monash University qualification, so you receive no award from us after completing your studies. You can, however, get a statement of your results as an academic transcript.
