So, Why should I come?

Community Week is a chance to connect with students and staff, to spend time in prayer and worship, enjoy some good FREE food with a community of people you will spend the semester with, and to have your questions answered about study.

And, all those who attend will go home with a Morling Goodie bag full of exciting things to help you get the best start to the Semester.

What is the MC101 Academic Study Skills Intensive?

The Academic Study Skills Intensive introduces students (in Bible and Theology, Counselling, Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care) to academic conventions at Morling, and gives you a sense of the skills needed to complete assignments. It is expected that new full-time, on-campus students will attend this intensive. Part time, online or other continuing students are most welcome to attend. This intensive is FREE for Morling College students.

If you can’t attend this Intensive, information is available in the Study Skills section of Moodle.
