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 (Summer 1 (CS) and Summer 2 (LS)). These courses are delivered in a shorter, more intensive format.

Enrolment for the Winter courses will open at 12pm on Wednesday 5 May 2021 through myHub only.

Please refer to the web timetable for the Winter class schedules. Alternatively, students may contact the relevant School Office for further timetable information.

Why study in Winter term?

Studying in 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.
