Want to do something productive over your summer holiday break? AUT Summer School offers intensive courses between November and February. These courses are open to everyone – even non-AUT students. Summer School is a great way to get ahead, learn something new or gain new skills.
The exact papers offered during Summer School change each year. However, you can expect to see a range of subjects offered in different disciplines, from science and business to education and languages.
We release the full list of subjects around October – check back here to find out what's on offer at Summer School 2019/2020.
There are several reasons you might choose to study over summer.
Learning something new to add to your skillset can help you progress in your current job or prepare you for a career change.
If you're fascinated by a particular topic area, Summer School can give you the chance to learn more about it with like-minded people in a friendly environment.
By studying over summer you can potentially accumulate enough credit points to get ahead and finish your degree a little sooner.
Taking a couple of subjects at Summer School could mean a reduced study load the following year, freeing up more time for other commitments.
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.
Applications for Summer School will open when we release the course list, around October 2019. Check back then for details or contact the Student Hub to discuss your programme.
Fees will differ depending on whether you are a domestic or international student. More information about Summer School fees will be available later in the year.
