Studying a single unit is the perfect way to try online study as there are no minimum requirements.
Take the next step in your career and develop your professional skills by studying a single unit with Swinburne Online. Or complete two units to gain entry into one of our undergraduate degrees.
All of the units available for study are full degree-level units, and have been specially chosen because they can be studied without any pre-requisite study. Whilst you don’t need any prior knowledge, you’ll walk away with the same skillset from each unit as a university student.
Our units are taught by eLAs, who are our academic staff with extensive knowledge on each subject matter. Additionally, they are often professionals working in the field they’re teaching, which means they’ll be able to bring real-life examples to the online classroom.
Once you’ve completed your unit successfully, you will receive a Swinburne transcript which you can add to your LinkedIn and resume to demonstrate your knowledge and skillset.
You can choose a total of up to four units to study on a single unit level. It is up to you whether you take multiple units in one teaching period, or spread your units out across multiple teaching periods. You can pick and choose the units that you want to study.
We currently offer units from a range of different areas, including design, sports management, understanding data and teaching.
We offer three intakes every year, in March, July and November and units vary depending on availability, so make sure to check the unit you would like to study is available at the right time.
