Summer and Winter school gives you the opportunity to complete units outside standard semesters.
You might be looking to accelerate your course, catch up on a failed unit of study, balance your timetable, or study subjects outside of your current course.
Units of study are offered over an intensive summer session in January and February, and then in July through our Winter School.
Some subjects run for six weeks while others are shorter. You can enrol in a maximum of two units of study in the summer session, and one in the winter session.
If the unit of study meets your course progression and you have satisfied the prerequisites, you will be able to credit it towards your degree and it will appear on your student record and academic transcript.
Find out what units are available, including fees, teaching dates and timetables on the subject list.
As Summer School study is an intensive program, you will not be permitted to have clashes between any units of study, so make sure you check the timetables before you apply.
You are required to attend class for a minimum of 80 percent of the specified contact hours for each subject.
You can also take interest-only subjects (known as ‘audit’ subjects) that will not be assessed, meaning you won’t receive a mark or grade upon completion. Credit points are not awarded for these subjects so you won’t receive credit towards your degree.
Tuition fees for Summer school units are calculated at the same rate as the same units in Semester 1 or 2. As with the standard semesters, your fees will depend on what type of student you are and the course you are studying. Find out more about tuition fees.
