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 during three sessions at the Summer School, from December through to February, either on campus or online.


  • Winter School 2017

    The Winter School 2017 subject list is now available here. Applications will open for Winter School 2017 at 9am on 10th May 2017.

  • Summer School 2018

    The subject list will be available for Summer School 2018 in September 2017.


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.


Winter school enrolments are fee paying for postgraduate and international students, calculated at the same fee rate as for Semester One or Two of that academic year. HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP are available to eligible domestic students. Places are limited and quotas exist on all subjects which will be filled in a first come, first served basis.
