Postgraduate Intensive Workshops

USQ Springfield offers postgraduate courses in 'block intensive' mode. This means that each course is delivered over two workshops (2 days each workshop) during the semester, not as weekly lectures.

All students attending these workshops receive full course materials and are able to commence their studies at the start of each semester, allowing time for reading and preparation prior to the workshops.

The benefits you may gain from block intensives are:

  • access to the Library and other resources
  • networking and collaboration with other students who are experiencing the same challenges and share the same interests
  • meeting with the course lecturers and interacting with guest speakers from industry
  • improving your study techniques and sharing study tips with other students.

Who should enrol in this mode?

This mode of study may significantly benefits students:

  • who are studying externally and are able to be on-campus for 2 days
  • who have family and work commitments that limit their capacity to devote time to study on a regular weekly basis
  • who value interaction and collaboration
  • who wish to obtain the best outcomes possible within a flexible learning environment.

Please note that if you are an international students you should talk to your course leader before enrolling in the block intensive mode workshops.

If you are a full-time student and prefer weekly support for your studies, normal weekly lecture mode in Toowoomba may be the best option for you.

How to enrol in this mode

The enrolment process for the intensive mode workshops are the same as a normal course. To enrol log into UConnect > UDo > Student Centre > Enrol. When selecting individual courses, select ‘ONC' mode at Springfield, if it is available.
