Summer School

The University offers a wide selection of undergraduate, postgraduate and preparatory courses in a range of subjects over the summer (November-February). If you’re looking at a new career direction, Summer School at UC is a great way to fast track your study. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to shorten the duration of your degree, spread your workload or improve your academic skills.
