Most subjects are presented in regular 3-hour classes, together with some periods of intensive teaching at the Melbourne City campus.
Intensive teaching may involve classes over a number of Saturdays per subject in any semester, although two Saturdays per subject should be regarded as normal. A detailed teaching timetable will be available at the commencement of each semester.
Ongoing assessment throughout a subject may include essays, reports, presentations, group projects, research projects, quizzes and tests, blog journals, practical assignments and examinations.
