Units of Study

UCLA Summer Sessions offer a wide-range of courses that are drawn from the university’s academic-year program of approved classes. A standard UCLA course is generally worth 4 units. This is equivalent to one 6-credit point unit of study at the University of Sydney and at the University of Western Australia. The package price includes the costs of two UCLA courses worth 4 units each. It is compulsory for students to complete at least 8 units (2 courses) for visa purposes. Students are able to take 5 unit courses and these have been included in the course list below. However, please note, an additional cost will apply for any course that is more than 4 units.

Some courses may have mandatory requisites and students are responsible for making sure they have the experience comparable to the listed requisites (information is available on the UCLA schedule of classes website). UCLA does not require students to provide proof of required knowledge.

The UCLA summer courses include lower-division, upper-division and graduate courses. As a general rule, the following applies:

  • Lower-division classes are numbered 1-99 and are meant for first-year and sophomore students. These are equivalent to University of Sydney and University of Western Australia first year units of study i.e. ‘1000 level units’, which are meant for junior students.
  • Upper-division courses are numbered 100-199 and are designed for juniors and seniors. These are equivalent to University of Sydney and University of Western Australia second and third year units of study i.e. ‘2000 and 3000 level units’, which are meant for intermediate and senior students.
  • Graduate courses are those numbered 200-299 and 500-599 (those from 500-599 are open only to UCLA graduate students).


Credit Approvals

Each student is responsible for understanding their own degree progression and what they can receive credit for. It is advised that students meet with their faculty advisors - or check through AskUWA - with their UCLA unit preferences so they know in advance prior to applying what credit they can receive.
 

UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA

In most instances, units will be counted towards category A or B broadening units or elective units where applicable. Students will be required to seek approval for each UCLA unit they wish to enrol in prior to departure. Credit towards any major or specialisation is subject to approval by the relevant department and the faculty.


UCLA Units

The below list includes 4-unit and 5-unit courses offered in the 2016 UCLA Summer Session. The units are subject to change, so please check on the UCLA Schedule of Classes for most updated course offerings.

Enrolment in most courses is unlimited prior to the first day of session. Courses with enrolment limits close when enrolment reaches the limit but students can be placed on a wait list when it is available. Often additional selections will be added as the wait list is filled to capacity.

For individual course descriptions, please visit the UCLA Schedule of Classes. After selecting the term (Summer 2016/Session A), subject area, and course, click on the nine-digit course ID number to find details specific to that course.

* These courses are worth 5 units and will incur an additional fee. All other courses listed are 4 units and are included in the program fees.
