Electives for Monash students

Single subject enrolment and cross-institutional unit enrolment

If you are not undertaking a Monash University degree, you can enrol in these units (subjects) as single subject enrolments. This allows you to study a discipline without completing an entire undergraduate or postgraduate degree. Single units are taken outside an award course; that is, you will not be enrolled in a Monash University degree program.

Single subject enrolments are full fee paying units. See Fees for more details and the coure fee calculator (found under Resources).

Completed units can be used to be credited towards current or future courses at Monash University or other institutions.
