Non-award study refers to enrolment in subjects that do not count towards your formal award course at UTS. You may choose to participate in non-award study out of personal interest, or to upgrade your skills or knowledge in a specific area.
If you decide to become a non-award student, you will not be eligible to access any of the government loan schemes. You also have to be an Australian or New Zealand citizen, or Australian permanent resident.
Cross-institutional study refers to enrolment in subjects for credit towards an award course at another Australian University in which a student is enrolled.
If you are a cross-institutional student, you may be eligible for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP depending on whether you have a CSP or DFEE place and meet the citizenship and residency requirements. If you’d like to apply for cross-institutional study at UTS, with your application you will be required to submit:
- your home institution's written confirmation that the subject(s) applied for will be credited towards your degree
- evidence of your current fee status at your home institution (CSP or Domestic Fee Paying).
