Block Courses 2017

Each semester a number of our undergraduate courses are offered using intensive blocks of teaching. These teaching blocks are normally held at the Auckland campus and operate over four, five or six days in either one or two blocks.

For students, the study time for these courses is still spread over a full semester. In addition to attending the intensive teaching blocks, students will complete readings and assessment tasks during the time before and after the teaching block.

Block courses are a great way for students to interact intensively over a short period with the lecturer – either a Carey staff member or a visiting specialist “expert” lecturer.
