No time for a full uni degree?


Take a course just when you need it 

A full uni degree can take anywhere from 3-10 years to complete and we understand that not everyone can wait that long. If you've got a particular interest in one or several individual courses, whether it be for personal or professional development, you can apply directly to USC and take a course just when you need it.

This type of enrolment classifies you as a visiting student. Visiting students are non-award students, meaning that you'll need to pay up-front tuition fees and you'll receive normal instruction, assessment and formal results.

If you choose to later enrol in a degree program at USC, you can have your completed visiting study assessed for credit transfer into your degree program.

So if you don't have time for a full uni degree, take a course just when you need it. Apply today to start in July.
