Summer study guidelines

Fees, timetable and other course information

You can find timetabling, fees and other course details on the individual course pages on Summer degree courses. Once you are enrolled you will be able to find your timetable on My Timetable.

Students studying over summer who are not currently enrolled at UC will pay a compulsory Student Services Levy in addition to their course fees. The amount of the levy will depend on the length of enrolment. For more information go to Student Services Levy.

The last classes before the Christmas break will be on Friday, 21 December 2018 and the first classes in the New Year will be on Thursday, 3 January 2019.

Student loans and allowances

For general Studylink advice go to Student loans and allowances. For further StudyLink information, eligibility and to apply for a student loan or allowance, please go to the StudyLink website.

Cancellation

UC reserves the right to cancel a summer course if the minimum number of enrolments is not reached. If this occurs, the School or Department will notify you directly.

Withdrawing with refund

A refund is available if you officially withdraw from a summer course (that is less than six weeks) by the first Friday after the official course start date. For courses greater than six weeks the last date to withdraw with a full refund is the second Friday after the official course start date.

Workload and expectations

We deliver most summer courses using an intensive teaching format. This condensed teaching and assessment schedule is demanding, so you may not take more than 30 points of coursework over the entire duration of summer.

Also note that due to the compressed and intensive nature of summer courses, it is often not possible to be as generous with extensions as it is for semester courses.

Summer School results release dates

  • Grades for courses with end dates in December will be released to students on Friday, 18 January at the latest.
  • Grades for courses with end dates in January/February will be released to students on Friday, 15 February at the latest.
