The Non-Award study program is managed by the Centre for Open Education.
Non-award enrolment is available in undergraduate and postgraduate units on a tuition-fee-paying basis. Students enrol in one or more University units (subjects), undertaking a study load at a pace that suits their needs.
* pursue a new interests for general personal development
* participate in professional development and extension by upgrading or learning new skills
* pathway into a degree program, either
* BA, BSc, BEd(Early Childhood), after the completion of at least 12 credit points, with an overall grade point average of 2.0 or better for all the credit points attempted
* OR BA-Psychology or BSc–Psychology after the completion of at least 12 credit points, with an overall grade point average of 2.5 or better for all the credit points attempted.
Enrolment at the University in single units is named non-award because a student is not currently enrolled for an award, that is, a degree, diploma or certificate program at Macquarie University. The credit-point value of Non-award units successfully completed can be included in a Macquarie degree at a later time.
Most units are half-year (single semester) units. Some are offered in the evening and/or by distance study.
An application for each unit will be assessed by Department/s offering the unit, in order to determine whether an applicant has sufficient academic background to manage the work required for that unit. If a unit has specific prerequisites (study which must be completed, or a requirement that must be satisfied before enrolment in that unit is permitted), verified documentation must be provided to enable a decision to be made.
Application does not guarantee enrolment in a unit.

Department of Asian Languages
Department of European Languages
Entry to the units below offered by the Department of Asian Languages is subject to a
minimum UAI of 60.00 for 2005 and previous HSC students, or a minimum age of 25
for other applicants.
You generally need to start a language at the beginning of the year as they usually have, say Japanese for Beginners I in first semester and Japanese for Beginners II in second semester. They usually don't have Japanese for Beginners I in second semester.baka said:hey people
can someone verify this
to do languages u have to have a min. of 60 UAI
and u cannot apply for language NON AWARD courses mid year?
Can I ask what are you looking to get into post-non award?baka said:oh i see
i dont satisfy the uai requirements
Whilst you can, don't do it without hesitation. Real x language =/= HSC x language =/= uni x language. If you've spent time in x country, you know the real language, not the academic version. If you've done it in the HSC, you've done the contrived, simplified version. Etc, etc.AsyLum said:Unless you already satisfy a relevant level
