Who is it for?
Students take Summer School papers for many reasons:
- to complete papers towards their qualifications
- to accelerate their degrees
- to orientate themselves before the start of first semester
- for interest
- the opportunity to study elsewhere via distance learning
Many papers are unique to Summer School, others are core components of degree programmes.
All papers have full academic credit - most are the same point value as semester papers.
One 18 point paper counts as full time study. Papers are taught over six weeks instead of the usual thirteen weeks of a semester.
Accommodation is provided by University College.
