Intensive schools are short, intensive periods of academic study including lectures, tutorials or seminars and laboratories. Often there may be assessment tasks conducted or explained during the intensive school. Intensive schools usually, but not always, take place at the university in Armidale.
Attendance at intensive schools can be non-mandatory or mandatory. Exemption from a mandatory intensive school is only possible (and by no means certain) if you are repeating a unit in which you have previously attended the mandatory intensive school. In this case you should contact the Unit Coordinator regarding attendance requirements. Non-attendance will likely will result in a Fail grade for the entire unit, unless you are granted an exemption from attendance by the Unit Coordinator.
