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 2019/2020 Summer Timetables will be published on Monday 14 October, 2019. Once published, students will be able to view these via the web timetable.

Enrolment for Summer courses will be open from 10am on Monday 14 October, 2019 through myHub. Class allocation through myTimetable (for courses where there are more than one class time to select from) will be available to students at 10am on Friday 1 November 2019.

For more information and a guide to enrolling please visit the How to Enrol webpage.

Be sure to check your program plan before enrolling in any courses over the Summer/Winter terms. 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 Summer/Winter 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 format – 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.
