Why Enrolling in an Intensive Unit Could Make Your Year Easier

Why Enrolling in an Intensive Unit Could Make Your Year Easier
Wednesday 19th December 2018

Each semester, you choose to study online or on-campus, but have you considered studying an intensive unit?

If you’re studying full time during semester, your time on-campus is like working a full time job, and the same commitment is needed for online students. Studying an intensive unit would reduce some of your weekly commitment to study by having most of the content presented in 3-5 on-campus days. With most intensives, there is an online component to the subject to work through during the Semester and some assessments, but imagine having one less class to attend each week.

Reducing your on-campus load is only one reason to enrol in an intensive. Here are some more:

  • Experience an on-campus unit

If you are an online student, you don’t normally have an opportunity to experience on campus classes. Studying an intensive gives you that opportunity.

  • Experience study at Morling

Intensives are a chance for students from other Bible Colleges to experience what study is like at Morling, learn with a different lecturer, interact with a new community and hear from different points of view.

  • The dates are already set

The dates are already set, so you can plan to take time off work to attend the on-campus days.

  • Catch up on a unit you may have missed

You may have missed fulfilling a specific unit within your course. Don’t be left behind! Use an intensive to catch up!

  • Get a head start on your study for the semester

Some intensives have all of their on-campus days before semester starts! This would reduce your weekly study load during semester, helping you balance life, family and ministry better.

Semester 1 Intensives count towards your study load for Semester 1, but some start with their on-campus days in January 2019.
