Summer Term

EPHUMA135 'Research in Action' will be offered at the Callaghan (Newcastle) Campus and Study from Home as compressed delivery. This is a special offering where course EPHUMA135 will be compressed into just 3 hours a day for 11 days over 3 weeks.

Research in Action provides an opportunity for you to pursue independent research on a topic relevant to your future undergraduate studies.

During Summer Term, you'll enjoy a smaller class size with a dedicated course coordinator, giving you the best environment to succeed.

Completing with Summer Term

You are eligible to complete your program with the Summer Term course if you have:

  • 10 units to complete your program
  • Completed all of your core courses (for Newstep and Yapug)

Will all degrees still be available for entry after Summer Term?

The first round of offers after grades are released for Summer Term will be made the week starting Monday 8th February.

In this later round places will be available in all programs on the Guaranteed Admissions Scheme, and most others with competitive entry to start in Semester 1 2021.

However, students who complete with Summer Term will not be eligible for Semester 1 2021 entry into the Bachelor of Midwifery or the Excellence Through Equity Pathway to Medicine due to the earlier application deadlines.

These quota-based programs also typically fill up in the 1st round, so it is unlikely places will be available after Summer Term:

  • B Biomedical Science

  • B Nursing
  • B Nutrition and Dietetics (Honours)
  • B Occupational Therapy (Honours)
