  • Upon Successful completion of this subject, students will have the knowledge and skills to: 

    • Read Persian texts in simple and calligraphic styles containing frequent structural forms and patterns with confidence;
    • Speak with understandable pronunciation and initiate and maintain predictable face-to-face conversations on personal, every day and cultural topics with a demonstrated knowledge of social courtesy demands;
    • Write independently with full control of the Persian script with minimal grammatical and syntactical error (including in the present, past and future tenses) in handwriting and/or typing on social and cultural topics; and

    • memorising the written and spoken forms of that week’s class content; and
    • individual study practising the week’s lesson, including written and spoken language forms, and vocabulary, and reviewing feedback on their work.

Single subject FAQs

What’s a single subject?

Single subjects are the individual components that make up a degree. With Open Universities Australia, you’re able to study many of them as stand-alone subjects, including postgraduate single subjects, without having to commit to a degree.

Each of your subjects will be held over the course of a study term, and they’ll usually require 10 to 12 hours of study each week. Subjects are identified by a title and a code, for example, Developmental Psychology, PSY20007.

How can I use single subjects to get into a full degree?

First, find the degree that you would like to study on our website.

If that degree allows entry via undergraduate subjects, there will be information about this under the Entry Requirements section. You will find a list of 2-4 open enrolment subjects you need to successfully complete to qualify for admission into that qualification.

Once you pass those subjects, you will satisfy the academic requirements for the degree, and you can apply for entry.

Our student advisors are here to help you take that next step, so don’t hesitate to reach out when you’re ready! We’ve also made it easier to figure out the right way to get started on our pathways page.
