Study attendance mode
Subjects can be taught in different ways which determine whether you attend on campus, intensively (block mode) or online.
For each subject, teaching period and campus location, one or more attendance modes may be available:
S - Standard attendance mode involves attendance at weekly, on-campus classes, over a session.
B - Block mode involves an intensive period of study, in classes scheduled over one or more weeks of the teaching period.
D - Distance (off-campus) mode students are provided with materials that they work through in their own time, supported by online and print materials and possibly one or two face-to-face sessions.
O - Offshore mode subjects are offered at a campus outside of Australia.
The attendance mode is listed in every subject code as a letter at the end. For example:
- 21655_AUT_U_1_S is Standard attendance mode
- 92607_SPR_U_1_B is Block attendance mode.
