Summer School

Summer School 2017 18

The University offers a wide selection of undergraduate, postgraduate and preparatory courses in a range of subjects over summer (November-February). Taking a summer course gives you an opportunity to get ahead by shortening the time it takes to complete your degree or to catch up by retaking courses you failed or withdrew from during the year. You can spread your workload, catch up after taking introductory courses during the year, enrol in summer only, improve your academic skills and if eligible you can receive StudyLink assistance over summer.
