OR most peo­ple, sum­mer means bar­be­cues, long days spent loung­ing by the pool and week­ends at the coast. But for a grow­ing frac­tion of the pop­u­la­tion, it also means squeez­ing an­other se­mes­ter of study in.

Of­fered by most lead­ing univer­si­ties and course providers, sum­mer se­mes­ter of­fers sev­eral hun­dred un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate cour­ses, taught dur­ing an in­ten­sive eight-week study pe­riod from De­cem­ber through to Fe­bru­ary.

Un­der­tak­ing a third se­mes­ter al­lows stu­dents to fin­ish their de­gree faster or study to sat­isfy a pro­gram’s pre­req­ui­sites.

They’re of­ten able to dis­cover new sub­ject ar­eas such as an­thro­pol­ogy, crim­i­nol­ogy, eco­nomics, busi­ness, or cre­ative writ­ing that aren’t other­wise avail­able to them.

Sum­mer se­mes­ter is a more con­cen­trated pe­riod and of­ten class sizes are smaller than or­di­nary semesters, mean­ing stu­dents are able to de­velop new skills and new ways of un­der­stand­ing the world.

For stu­dents who elect to study over the sum­mer se­mes­ter, there are sev­eral things they should keep in mind to en­sure their mo­ti­va­tion doesn’t wane and the pe­riod is ben­e­fi­cial to their de­gree. be­fore be­ing suit­able for en­rol­ment. If adding a third se­mes­ter to your yearly sched­ule is a pri­or­ity, be sure to take this into con­sid­er­a­tion at the begin­ning of each year.
