Single units

Enrolling in single units is an alternative to studying an entire graduate course. Health professionals wishing to improve and advance particular skills in their current profession can study units in clinical pharmacy, pharmacy practice and wound care.

Important notes

Single-unit enrolments don't count towards a Monash University degree, so you don't receive an award after completing your study. However you can get an academic transcript of your results.

You receive permission for single-unit study for specific units for one semester only. We can't guarantee a subsequent enrolment.

Single-unit enrolments are available on a fee-paying basis only.

Single-unit study may earn credit toward subsequent enrolment in an award course.
