Independent Study Contract (ISC)

An Independent Study Contract (ISC) allows a Murdoch University student to study a topic or subject of personal interest which is not otherwise available as a formal unit, and to obtain credit for this towards his or her course. It differs from formal units in that it relies on independent study rather than formal classes, and on the initiative of the student to choose and define the topic.
