Studying in the summer or winter break

The summer and winter breaks can be an opportunity to complete units outside of the main semesters.

You might be looking to accelerate your course, catch up on a failed unit of study, balance your timetable, or study subjects outside of your current course.

If you’re not a University of Sydney student, you may be considering summer or winter study as a non-award unit for your own interest or as cross-institutional study from another institution.

How does it work?

You can take a unit of study during the intensive January or February session (over summer) or in the Intensive July session (over winter) in addition to units taken during the main semester.

Some subjects run for six weeks while others are shorter. If the unit of study meets your course requirements and you have satisfied the prerequisites, you will be able to credit it towards your degree and it will appear on your student record and academic transcript.

Event or deadline Date

What can I study?

The following units are available in the upcoming intensive July session. Intensive 2020 January and February units will be available here once Semester 2 is underway.

You can find more information by selecting the description next to each unit of study. If you are taking a unit as part of your course you should also check your course rules and unit of study requirements in the relevant handbook.

As study in the summer and winter breaks involves an intensive program, you will not be permitted to have clashes between any units of study, so make sure you check the unit of study timetables before you enrol. If a unit is not centrally timetabled you will need to contact the unit of study coordinator to find out when the unit is scheduled.

You are required to attend class for a minimum of 80 percent of the specified contact hours for each subject.

Selecting these units

Current students

You select intensive units in the same way that you do units in the main semesters, through Sydney Student.

You can currently select intensive July units for 2019. You can select Intensive January and Intensive February 2020 units once enrolment opens for Semester 1 2020.

As with other units, you’ll need to select the unit before the last day to add for that session.

To make sure you are enrolling in an intensive session, you will need to select the correct session code.

Intensive units will count towards your study load for the main semesters. Depending on your faculty or school, you can usually take up to a maximum of 24-30 credit points per semester. If you’d like to take more than the maximum number of credit points, you may need to apply for special permission for the intensive unit.

Applying from outside the University

You can apply to study in the summer/winter break as non-award for your own interest or as cross-institutional study from another institution. Once you’ve chosen your unit you will need to apply for non-award or cross-institutional study through the Find a course website.

  1. Select a winter Intensive July unit from the list above to see more information. Take note of the faculty responsible for the unit and the level of study (undergraduate/postgraduate).
  2. Go to Find a course and search cross-institutional or non-award. Select the relevant faculty and level. For example, if the unit you’re interested in is postgraduate and administered by the Business school you will need to apply for Business postgraduate cross-institutional.

Fees

Tuition fees for units taken in intensives are calculated at the same rate as the same units in Semester 1 or 2. As with the main semesters, your fees will depend on what type of student you are and the course you are studying. Find out more about tuition fees.

If eligible, you may be able to apply for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP to assist with these fees.

The units you’ve enrolled in will be added to your Student Financial Statement in Sydney Student. As with other units, you'll need to pay your fees by the due date on your statement.
