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 Winter School teaching period starts on 2 July and concludes on 13 July. Given the intense nature of Winter School, we recommend that you only enrol in one subject.

How to enrol in Winter School

Current students who meet the prerequisites may enrol in winter subjects via StudentOnline. If the subject requires Subject Coordinator approval, complete a Variation of Enrolment (under the Enrolment tab in StudentOnLine).

Non-La Trobe students may also enrol in winter subjects by completing an Application for Single Unit Enrolment Form [PDF 263KB]. Applicants should contact ASK La Trobe to discuss single-subject application closing dates and supporting document requirements. Successful applicants will be enrolled directly into the subject.

Please contact the subject coordinator if you require more information.


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.
