Southern Cross U keeps courses short

SCU has piloted its “revolutionary teaching model this year – it will cover “most” courses next year and all in 2023

The programme consists of one or two subjects “with carefully sequenced content” over a six-week teaching term rather than four units over a twelve-week session.

“The shorter, more focused unit structure … gives students a greater sense of momentum and motivation as they achieve milestones quickly,” SCU states.

Sounds similar to the block model developed at Victoria U, which teaches one short subject at a time.
