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.


Units of Study are offered in three Summer School sessions. Exams may occur after the teaching finishes.

Most Units of Study in Summer School cater for a maximum number of enrolments. This means that classes fill on a first come, first served basis. If you withdraw from a Unit of Study, your place will be made available for another student.


All Units of Study are full fee-paying, so please make your Unit of study selection on the understanding that HECS-HELP is not available for domestic students in Summer School.


Summer School enrolments are designated full fee-paying and are not covered by HECS-HELP, however FEE-HELP is available to eligible domestic students.
