Mathematics and Statistics in the Summer School
The School of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Sydney offers under the name Summer School a selection of units of study as intensive units.
In 2021, the Summer School will run during the University's Intensive February session from Monday, 18 January 2021 until 27 February 2021 (6 weeks). For each unit of study offered during this intensive session
- the corresponding lectures and tutorials/labs are given from 18 January - 12 February 2021 (4 weeks)
- the corresponding final exam will be scheduled at one day in the period 18 - 22 February 2021.
Online Lectures, Online Tutorials/Labs and Online Assessments
The lectures and tutorials/labs to each unit of study offered in Summer School will be given via Zoom. But, in addition, to this, we offer for each unit of study at least one tutorial/lab face-to-face. All Assessments including the final exam to each unit of study will be held online .
If are overseas or simply not close to the Camperdown Campus in Sydney, but intend to enrol into one/two unit(s) of study offered in Summer School, then "yes", you will be able to follow them fully online.
By choosing one or more unit of study during Summer School, it is important for you to know that that they are in an intensive unit.
If you’re an international student on a student visa, you need to have an active eCoE and visa that covers any period that you're studying in. This means you can’t select units held in an intensive session before the commencement date outlined on your offer letter. If you were approved for a suspension in your first semester of study, you can't select units held in an intensive session before the start date of the standard semester. If you are considering studying an intensive unit, you need to make sure you are enrolled in a full time study load, where at least 18 credit points is completed during the standard semester.
