Enrolling in Summer and Winter Terms

Undergraduate or postgraduate students can complete Summer Term or Winter Term units. It can be a great way to fast-track your course or repeat failed units of study.

To enrol in a Summer or Winter Term units select the Summer or Winter teaching period when you are choosing units. 

How many units you can study

Because class contact hours for Summer or Winter Term units are intensive, you're only allowed to study up to two units in a Summer or Winter Term.

Most units are delivered on-campus, with a few select units available online.

International students on a student visa (ESOS): As of 1 January 2018, you can only complete a maximum of one-third of your course online. If you exceed this limit, Swinburne will remove you from online unit(s) until you meet this requirement. Remember, you must always maintain a full-time study load across the year and in each compulsory study period for a course, you must be studying at least one unit that is not by distance or online learning.
