Summer units

Adding a summer unit to your timetableallows you to build more into your degree, to catch up on credit points or accelerate your studies to graduate ahead of schedule.

Find everything you need to know about taking a summer unit – including enrolment instructions, key dates and fee information – on our summer and winter semester website.

Undergraduate options

To be eligible for a summer unit, you need to have at least one year of university study under your belt (that’s 48 credit points, or the units completed in one calendar year), and a credit average (60%) or higher in your previous year of study.

Graduate options

To be eligible for a summer unit, you need to have at least one semester of postgraduate study completed, with a credit average (60%) or higher. As a graduate student, you can only be approved for a maximum of one unit per teaching period (that’s one summer A and one summer B).

Get the right advice

Talk to Student Services or the coordinator for your graduate course at your home campus before enrolling in a summer unit, to make sure it’s the best option for you.

Not a Monash student?

You can still apply for one of our summer school units – either on a non-award, full-fee paying basis, or as a cross-institutional study unit (with approval from your home university).
