The Sydney Summer School

Welcome to the University of Sydney Summer and Winter School. We look forward to your enrolment in the units of study that we offer in the periods between regular semesters.

During the summer sessions we offer more than 100 undergraduate and postgraduate units of study from faculties across the University. These are taught from January through to February, either on campus or online.


  • Summer School 2018

    The subject list for Summer School 2018 is available here. Applications will open at 9am October 3rd 2017 and close after 11:59pm Dec 8th 2017.

  • Special Permission Requests

    The Special Permission portal in Sydney Student is not available for Summer School 2018. Information on how to apply for Special Permission is available here.

  • Timetables

    All Summer School unit timetables are listed on the Unit of Study page. Students are not sent personal timetables like Semester 1 and 2, instead students are required to check the Summer School website for all timetable information. Any changes will be updated and posted online.

  • Business School units

    The Sydney Summer School is only running two Business units during Summer School 2018, ITLS6301 and ITLS6500. Other Business School units will be run directly by the faculty as Intensive Units. Please contact the Student Centre for further information.


Subjects in Summer School and Winter School have a limited number of places. Classes fill on a first come, first served basis. A small number of places in each subject are reserved for cross-institutional students.
