Summer units

By adding a summer unit to your timetable, you can build more into your degree, 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).
