Single subjects

Take the next step into uni study with a single subject. You’ll add value to your current job or diversify your skills when it comes to your next one.

Single subject study is a great option to upskill while you work. They are short online courses and you'll study the same course material that's in our degrees. Join lively online discussions and access a wealth of online resources.

Most single subjects are open entry, so you can enrol and start learning right away. What's more, your subject will give you credit towards a related degree, such as a graduate certificate, if you decide to pursue one later. It's a win-win.
