The Sydney Summer School
The University of Sydney's academic excellence attracts students from around the world to take part in our intensive Summer School offered over three sessions from December to February, or in our Winter School in July.
Students can accelerate their course, catch up on a failed subject, balance their timetable, or study subjects outside their current course.
For students joining us at Sydney for the first time and are not enrolled in a degree, they can study as a non-award student and get a taste of our diverse academic offerings, and even get a head start on their degree if you’ve just completed Year 12.
For students joining us at Sydney for the first time and are enrolled in a course at another university, they can pick up a subject as a cross-institutional student and have it count toward their degree.
