Summer School is a six-week intensive course of study that allows you to complete one full paper towards your degree or for special interest. Summer School usually runs from early January to mid-February, however sometimes pre-Christmas Summer School papers are offered. Many papers are unique to Summer School, and the small class sizes and fewer people on campus offer a unique learning environment. The papers are taught in a condensed timeframe but with the same academic standards and content as a semester paper, so the experience of Summer School is quite demanding but also very satisfying.
One 18-point paper constitutes a full workload for StudyLink purposes, although very able students can study up to a maximum of 36 points during Summer School.
