INTENSIVES, SUMMER & WINTER SCHOOL

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 program across the summer and winter breaks, and Intensive Study Units.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

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.

INTENSIVES

Intensives run on-campus in blocks of 1 week during Summer School (the weeks prior to Semester 1 commencement) or Winter School (the weeks prior to Semester 2 commencement). These are a great way to complete all of your in-class requirements in a short period of time. Please speak with your course advisor to find out if your course has any limits on the number of Intensives you may complete. Intensive units are denoted with an “i”. Please ensure that you place the “i” after your unit code in all correspondence, as the lecturers and assignments may differ to on-campus study.

SEMI-INTENSIVES

Much like Intensives, Semi-intensives are a great way of completing your in-class requirements in a short space of time. These are four to five full day blocks of study spread out throughout a semester. Please speak with your course advisor to find out if your course has any limits on the number of Semi-intensives you may complete. Semi-intensive units are denoted with an “i”. Please ensure that you place the “i” after your unit code in all correspondence, as the lecturers and assignments may differ to on-campus study.

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.
