Academic Calendar Summer School 2015

 

The Summer School study period is not part of the normal teaching pattern but is used to enable catch up or accelerated progression.

The range of units offered in Summer School is not as extensive as the range of units offered in Semester 1 and Semester 2 and students are limited to an enrolment of 2 units due to the reduced number of teaching weeks.
