Current ACU Students contact your course coordinator to discuss your degree requirements

Can I get credit at my university for my studies at ACU?
It is your responsibility to obtain written confirmation from your home institution to show that the subjects(s) you plan to study will be credited (and for what credit points) to your degree on successful completion. You should obtain written confirmation prior to your enrolment in the ACU July School. Each ACU 10 credit point course is offered with up to 36 contact hours over 2 weeks and is equivalent to 7.5 European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) credits or 3-4 credit hours (USA). Students receive an ACU transcript with the grade(s) awarded after completion of subject(s).
For international students – Complete the online Study Abroad/Exchange application form. Ensure that you complete all ACU July School sections. Contact the ACU July School coordinator with any application questions.
If you are a current ACU student, you will pay tuition as per your degree requirements. If you request accommodation through ACU your total fee will include accommodation with wi-fi internet access. Your fee does not cover the cost of your return airfares to Sydney (if applicable) or your local transport in Sydney. Your food is not included but there are cooking facilities at the accommodation and cafes and restaurants close by. Access to the ACU library and electronic resources is included but printing in the library is an additional cost. Additional fees may be required for some course excursions and social program activities.
Are meals provided?
It is advised that you pack for all kinds of weather. You should include warm clothes (scarf, jacket, and jumper), as at night the weather can get cold.
Make sure you pack comfortable shoes as there will be quite a bit of walking.
Bring your own towel and basic toiletries (eg. shampoo/soap). There are retail and grocery shops located in the area however, if you need to buy anything.
In Sydney, our winter runs from June to August, so July is in mid-winter. Sydney’s climate is not as cold as many other countries. In July, most days the temperature ranges from about 8°C (46°F) to 19°C (66°F). Typical days are sunny with a low chance of rain falling. If you want to swim, the average sea temperature in July is 18°C (64°F).
Mains voltage in Australia is 230V 50Hz. If your country has the same mains voltage as Australia all you need is a power adapter to enable you to plug your appliance into the sockets. If your country has a different mains voltage, you will also need a voltage converter. This will transform the voltage from the power outlet into one your appliance can use. The plugs in Australia have two straight pins in a / \ shape and sometimes a third vertical pin is centered below the upper two pins.
