Why do Summer School?

There are several reasons you might choose to study over summer.

1. Improve your employability

Learning something new to add to your skillset can help you progress in your current job or prepare you for a career change.

2. Learn something new

If you're fascinated by a particular topic, Summer School can give you the chance to learn more about it with like-minded people in a friendly environment.

3. Fast-track your degree

By studying over summer you can potentially accumulate enough credit points to get ahead and finish your degree a little sooner.

4. Lighten your study load

Taking a couple of subjects at Summer School could mean a reduced study load the following year, freeing up more time for other commitments.

5. Catch up

Sometimes external circumstances can impact your ability to get through the semester. If you failed a subject, Summer School can help you catch up in time for the new year.

Industry Experience and Research
"Studying over summer allowed me to finish my double degree in four years and with my peers.""The summer school course I took consisted of doing two internships and learning research techniques, so it was a 50/50 split of industry experience and classroom-based learning. It gave me hands-on experience in the sport and recreation industry and was a great way to make contacts that helped to launch my career.

"I also learnt research methods and data analysis techniques that could be applied to the workplace to explore new ideas or test new opportunities."

"I’d recommend Summer School at AUT as it truly is a rich and collaborative learning experience.”Neda loved the collaborative and interactive learning experience of Summer School so much she decided to do it two years in a row. “There are fewer students in the class, classes are more frequent, there is an abundance of learning resources for students, and lecturers and tutors were always available to assist me when approached.

"I’d recommend Summer School at AUT as it truly is a rich and collaborative learning experience.”
