Non-Award Study Postgraduate Single Units - Policies and Procedures

Students must acknowledge these policies and procedures before enrolling. These Policies and Procedures are an addendum to those in the AIM Business School Student Handbook and apply specifically to students enrolling in postgraduate single unit Non-Award study. If any provision contained in these Policies and Procedures conflicts with any provision in the AIM Business School Student Handbook, the provision contained in these Policies and Procedures shall govern and control.

Non-Award Study

Non-Award study refers to enrolment in units that do not count towards a formal award course (such as a Graduate Diploma in Management). However, you may be able to apply for credit for completed units when applying to enroll in an award course in the future. See specific AIM polices for AIM courses or other institution terms and conditions for applicable credits for their award courses

Government loan schemes, such as FEE-HELP are not available for Postgraduate Single Units.

Entry Requirements

  • Two years managerial experience plus an undergraduate degree
  • Three years managerial experience plus a post-secondary qualification e.g. Diploma or Advanced Diploma
  • Five years managerial experience
  • Applications not meeting these criteria will be assessed on an individual basis

Mode of Study

A fully online experience with interactive real-time online sessions. The duration of each online unit is 7 weeks. All units are built around 10 topic areas, all with corresponding engaging learning materials. Students will work through recorded lectures, readings and activities and self-assessment questions. Each online unit offers 4 Interactive Consultation Sessions (ICS) with a highly experienced AIM facilitator. Each webinar runs for approximately two hours, in weeks 1,3,5 and 7.

Attendance Expectations and Requirements

Students are expected to attend all ICS in real time. Online webinar sessions are recorded so students can access these as required and complete any related assignments.

Payment of Fees

Non-Award study is offered on a full fee-paying basis only. Non-Award students must pay in full by the due date, and are not eligible to defer fees through any of the government loan schemes.

Unit Withdrawals

1. Students who wish to withdraw from a unit they are enrolled in must fill in a withdrawal form and send this to Student Support at absstudentsupport@aim.com.au. The withdrawal form can be found in myABS, on the Home Page, under Student Administration.

2. Students who submit their withdrawal form on or before the unit start date will receive a full refund minus 20% administration fee or credit towards an alternative unit of study.

3. Withdrawals made after the unit start date will not be eligible for refund

Unit Start Date Change

Once enrolled into a specific Postgraduate Single Unit cohort any request to change to a cohort with a different start date must be submitted to AIM Business School Student Support (absstudentsupport@aim.com.au) at least 7 days prior to the enrolled unit start date.

Admission to AIM Award Courses and Credit Transfer

Completion of a Non-Award subjects does not guarantee future admission to an AIM award program.

Successfully completed Non-Award units are recognised as a credit for the corresponding unit within an AIM award program. AIM will recognise credit for up to 50% of the units within a specific AIM award program. For instance, the AIM Graduate Certificate in Management structure has four units of study. If two of these units have been successfully completed by non-award single unit study, both will be recognised for credit if the student is enrolled into the AIM Graduate Certificate in Management. If three units have been successfully completed by non-award single unit study only TWO will be recognised for credit.

Completion

Upon successful completion of a Postgraduate Single Unit AIM will issue a Certificate of Attainment.
