Mode of delivery
The majority of units are held on the University’s Camperdown campus. Science-based units such as ecology and analytical chemistry are generally run during business hours, while some of the social units like environmental law are run after working hours. Although teaching times vary, most units are taught as a three hour block once per week for at least six weeks. Some units are taught more intensively, all day, and some even over a period of just one week. All assessment is primarily by essay, assignment and presentation, with a small examination component.
