Winter School

How can Winter School benefit me?

You can use Winter School to:

  • finish university and start work sooner
  • spread study load more evenly through the year
  • free up more time for working during the standard semesters
  • study interesting electives.

The 2021 Winter semester runs over a four-week period from Monday 14 June to Friday 9 July. Subjects may run for less than the full four weeks, or start in the middle of the teaching period, so check the 'subject options' section of each individual subject to see exactly when it will be running.

Given the intensive nature of Winter School, we usually recommend that you only enrol in one subject.

How to enrol in Winter School

Current students

You do not need to contact ASK La Trobe to request to be enrolled. You can self enrol via StudentOnLine.

Students who meet the prerequisites may enrol in Winter subjects via StudentOnLine. If you are unable to self-enrol, complete a Variation of Enrolment (under the Enrolment tab in StudentOnLine).

If the subject requires Subject Coordinator approval, please seek their approval via email and attach a screenshot of their approval to a Variation of Enrolment.

If you are already enrolled in 60 credit points for Semester 2, StudentOnLine may prevent you from enrolling due to a credit point issue. In this case, please submit a Variation of Enrolment for your enrolment to be processed manually.

Non-La Trobe students

If you're currently enrolled at La Trobe, Winter School subjects will form part of your normal course study costs if the subject fits within your course structure. If you apply using the single unit studies application form, higher fees will apply.

For those thinking about taking a subject as a non-award subject, fee information is available online using our fee calculator. Note, the cost of the subjects vary between discipline bands.

Students auditing the subject (meaning that no assessments are done and the subject is not counted towards your degree) are not required to pay fees at the same level as those who take assessments – fees vary – and you should contact ASK La Trobe for more information.
