Intensive mode delivery
Please be advised: All postgraduate programs in the area of Built Environment will commence intensive mode delivery from January 2023. Subjects will be delivered in person as intensive blocks of study rather than weekly classes. Intensive blocks are generally Thursday – Saturday inclusive.
Intensive Mode Delivery is a compact and time efficient way to complete a postgraduate qualification with minimal impact on professional and personal lifestyles. Each subject is delivered over two weekends during the semester. There are usually two sets of three-day sessions per subject, scheduled Thursday to Saturday (approximately six to eight contact hours per day) with a break of four or five weeks between session one and session two of each subject.
Participants will receive 40 hours of combined lectures, discussion groups, case studies and workshops during contact hours. International students are required to be on campus every week.
