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 three opportunities to study over Summer: Summer, Compressed Summer and Late Summer.

These courses are delivered in a shorter, more intensive format.

Be sure to check your program plan before enrolling, as if the course is not part of your degree, this is considered non-award study and fees apply which are additional to your degree costs.

Contact ProgramAdvice@newcastle.edu.au if you are unsure whether a course over the Winter or Summer can be included in your program.

Why study in Summer/Winter term?

Studying over the Summer or 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 fashion – and a maximum of 20 units able to be studied per Summer or Winter term – many students find the term a refreshing change to the usual mode of study.
