Summer Units

Thinking about getting ahead this summer? Finish your course sooner with a summer unit from CQUniversity. Choose from our wide range of subjects available for cross-institutional students to study online or on-campus in Term 3, commencing 9 November 2020.

Cross-institutional study means you can complete a CQUniversity unit deemed equivalent to your own university’s unit (which could also be called a course), and gain credit for this to be applied to your degree.

With so many of our units available via distance, you can study where you want, when you want this summer. Selected units are also available to study on campus in various locations.
