Further information


Albany Summer School

Head down south to Albany’s Summer School.

The UWA Albany Campus will be offering a range of units for students to attend during the Summer break period.

Summer Session

Beginning summer 2017/18, a new and more comprehensive Summer School will commence at UWA. Summer School will be offered from late November 2017 to early February 2018, followed by an exam period (5-9 February 2018).

By choosing from 70 units from a variety of disciplines, you can accelerate, make up or spread the load of your studies. Introduce flexibility and teaching innovation into your study plans by completing units in six weeks or equivalent intensive teaching periods. Units offered in Summer School cover the same content and have the same workload associated with them as subjects taught in standard semesters.

For the first time, units offered in Summer School will also be open to Year 12 students and members of the general public. More information about which units you can apply for, applicable fees and the enrolment process can be found below.

Summer School Teaching Periods

The 2017/18 Summer School will take place from 27th November 2017 until 2nd February 2018, followed by a week-long exam period (5-9 February 2018). During that time, units will be offered in six weeks or less (depending on their intensive teaching mode). Check the units you are interested in for their specific availability.

2017/18 Summer School Units

The full list of unit offerings for the 2017/18 Summer School is published in the University Handbook, including availability and pre-requisite information.

Note that in addition to units offered in the 2017/18 Summer School, a number of additional units are being offered between the end of Semester 2, 2017 and the start of Semester 1, 2018, including a number of Service Learning units. Please check the Service Learning Unit section in the 2018 Handbook for more information or use the Handbook search functionality if you want to check availability of a specific unit.
