Non-Award and Professional Development

Non-Award unit has the same tuition fee as course units.

In this case, study does not result in Higher Education Credit.  The fees associated with study undertaken in this manner, including the Postgraduate Course in Psychiatry (PCP) is usually lower than course unit fees.

2019 fees for units studied as Professional Development or PCP are $1485 per unit of study. Total course cost is $17,820.
