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

Enrolment for the Summer courses will open at 10am on Monday 19 October 2020, through myHub only. Class allocation through myTimetable (for courses where there is more than one class time to select from) will be available soon.

Why study in Summer term?

Studying over the Summer terms 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.

How to enrol in a Summer Term

If a course is part of your current program, you can enrol in Summer Term study through myHub.

Click the Summer/Winter Terms tile on the myHub homepage (this will only be visible when enrolment for each term has opened).

You will be taken through the process of selecting your preferred term and then enrol as you normally would in any Semester or Trimester.

Note: courses will only run if enough students enrol in them. You will be notified through your student email if any course in which you have enrolled is cancelled.
