What is Session 3?

Question:

What is Session 3?

Answer:

Session 3 is an opportunity to accelerate your studies by taking one or two units during the traditional summer break.

Session 3 units are compressed and more intensive, running for six weeks from early December to early February (five weeks of teaching and one week of exams). For that reason students may only take a maximum of two units in Session 3.

Units offered in Session 3 have identical learning outcomes, means of assessment and prerequisite structures as their equivalents offered at other times of the academic year, though the shorter length of the session may mean that these units will be delivered using online or group sessions, as well as face-to-face teaching.  

The summer months are a great time to enjoy the campus and make the most of the University facilities. The library, learning skills team, food and beverages facilities, disability support services, English language help, mentoring and other student services are all available.
