Special permission/departmental permission

The Special Permission portal is unavailable in Sydney Student for Summer School or Winter School. Instead students will need to contact the faculty directly with this request for Special Permission.

  • Please send an email to your faculty (email addresses below), asking for Special Permission with your Student ID and supporting information.
  • If you are approved for Special Permission via email, please forward this response to us to re-assess your application if there are positions available.
  • We cannot hold positions for students as they await their Special Permission outcome.
  • Students must submit an application for Summer School in addition to seeking Special Permission from the Faculty.

Please note due to the intensive study mode of Summer and Winter School, subject prerequisites and prohibitions may differ from those required during Semesters.

External Students

If you are an external applicant and the Unit of Study you wish to undertake requires Department or other Special Permission, the Sydney Summer School may contact the relevant faculty or department to confirm your eligibility for admission. Please be aware that this may involve a delay in the assessment of your application.

If you are enrolled in another university please obtain advice from your home institution that credit obtained in Summer School or Winter School will be credited to that degree and at what credit point value. It is recommended that you obtain this information in writing prior to enrolling at Summer School or Winter School.
