Summer School Terms & Conditions


All students must be fully vaccinated (i.e. have had 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine) and be able to provide evidence of vaccination to attend Sturt Summer School.


Enrolments are in order of application as class sizes are limited. Enrolments must be accompanied by full payment of the course fee and an enrolment form submission. 

Sturt reserves the right to cancel a class if minimum enrolments are not reached by 1 December 2021, or in circumstances beyond its control. If a course is cancelled, enrolled students will be offered placements in their 2nd choice. Should the student be unable or unwilling to enrol in their 2nd choice a refund of all fees will be offered. 


Students must be at least 16 for all adult classes. Participants under 18 (and at least 16) must be accompanied by an adult to stay in accommodation on site. 


Students cancelling before 10 December 2021 will incur a $150 cancellation fee. No refunds of any course fee, accommodation, materials or meals will be given after 10 December for any other reason other than proven COVID-19-related travel restrictions.  Late enrolments will be accepted if places available before commencement of Summer School.

All payments should be made online. If you are having difficulty enrolling please contact the Sturt Gallery on 02 4860 2083 or email
