'Course' and 'Subject' Definition

What is the difference between a 'Course' and a 'Subject'?

All courses and subjects currently taught at the University of Melbourne can be found in the Handbook.

Course: the degree or diploma program in which you are admitted. 
Subject: one unit of study which you enrol in as part of your course.

Questions about the content of a course, or the academic requirements of a course, should be directed to the Program Director, Course Coordinator or appropriate contact nominated by the relevant academic division and listed on the course's Handbook entry.
