The University of Newcastle, Australia

Winter and Summer study

A number of courses are offered to undergraduate and postgraduate students over the University mid-year break, through the Winter term as well as opportunities to study over two Summer Terms. These courses are delivered in a shorter, more intensive format.

The 2020 Winter Timetable has been published and can be viewed via the web timetable.

Enrolment for Winter courses is now open through myHub. Class allocation through myTimetable (for courses where there is more than one class time to select from) is also available.

Why study in Winter term?

Studying over the Winter term is a great way to catch up on content or a course that you've missed, or to fast-track your degree.

What’s more, with the courses on offer delivered in a compressed format many students find the term a refreshing change to the usual mode of study.
