BIBLE & THEOLOGY WINTER INTENSIVES

At Morling, our mission is to equip men and women with the knowledge that they need to serve God in many different roles: pastoral ministry, in the work place, Christian education, missions work, counselling, and chaplaincy. We also recognise that it is often difficult to stop working in order to pursue further study.  In order to accommodate students who cannot attend weekly lectures, Morling has established a study program across the summer and winter breaks, and Intensive Study Units during semesters 1 and 2.

  • UNDERSTANDING INTENSIVES (click for more information)

    Intensives are designed to deliver the face-to-face teaching, necessary for skills development, in a short period of time, while utilising online learning for the remainder of the course material. Normally, intensive units will include online learning components designed to be completed prior to the face-to-face intensive days, so please take note of the start date for each intensive. There are three different types of intensives:

    • Intensives - Intensives are units which are delivered primarily on-campus (face-to-face delivery). Students should be aware that approx 20-30% of course content will normally be delivered online prior to the 4-5 on-campus days.  
    • Semi-Intensives - Semi-Intensives are units which normally have 5 on-campus days with face-to-face delivery spread out over the semester with some online support materials. 
    • Year-Long Semi-Intensives - Our two year-long semi-intensives are both certificates designed to train people for specific ministries - Church Planting, Children's Ministry or Youth Ministry. 
    • Regional Hub Intensives - one intensive unit is delivered each semester through each of our regional hubs in Orange & Wagga Wagga

    Our world today may be less Christian, but it is certainly not less spiritual. How do we share the truth and relevance of our faith in such a world? How do we reach peoples hearts, as well as their minds? And what role can we play in equipping each other and the Church? (1 Peter 3:15)

ACT Regulations

The ACT limits the number of units which may be studied in intensive mode for undergraduate and graduate awards. All students should check the regulations for the award in which they are enrolled.

How Do Intensives Work?

Intensives are lectures given as a series over several consecutive days (generally a one-week period). Semi-intensives run over several non-consecutive days, spread over several weeks (for example, a series of Mondays). Each intensive unit is run differently, so it is important that you contact Morling College for information on when the intensives are scheduled, the prior reading requirements, and how frequently the unit is offered.

Because of the fast-paced nature of intensive units, we strongly recommend that you enquire with a faculty member of Morling if you are interested in attending these classes.

The Benefits of Intensive Units

Many students at Morling are working professionals with families, commitments and a busy schedule. We understand that making time each week to attend lectures can be difficult. Intensive Units provide a way for students to gain the same quality of education at a pace that works around your busy schedule.

On Campus Accommodation During Intensives 

Casual accommodation is available in Morling Residential College and can be booked through the Casual Bookings Website. Any enquiries regarding accommodation can be by email: accommodation@morling.edu.au or Phone: 02 8458 2320.

Students must book accommodation at least two weeks before the starting date of their booking for their accommodation to be guaranteed. Bookings less than two weeks before the start date may incur significant additional costs.
