Please note: All students and/or university staff must complete the application process and pay the applicable fee to participate in the program (including attending lectures) even if there is no intention to take the course for credit.

Choosing your Course/s
Information about each course, including a synopsis, overview, prerequisites, assessment and resources, as well as a short lecturer biography is available under Courses & Lecturers.
Students may enrol in a maximum of two courses. Every effort will be made to accommodate your choice. Where necessary, preference will be given a “first come, first served” basis. The final decision on course placements is at the discretion of the AMSI Summer School organisers.
You will need to indicate your course choices in your application, but you can decide at a later date if you would like to take a course for credit. If you take a course for assessment, you will need approval from your home university.
