May-June 2022 Intensive Courses 

Intensive Courses

25 MAY – 3 JUNE 2022

Onsite, online, and concurrent courses offered at EAST this semester.

Most EAST courses include both synchronous and asynchronous portions. During the synchronous portion, the class meets at a specific time either online via Zoom or onsite at EAST. “Concurrent” courses are held onsite and online simultaneously. Singapore residents who are taking the course for credit can only take the course onsite. Audit students must choose either onsite or online for the duration of the course.

During the asynchronous portion of each course, enrolled learners do assigned work on their own by a specific date (e.g. online discussions, readings, watching videos, etc.). Visiting audit students are expected to be faithful in class attendance and some classes may require completion of certain assignments and/or in-class projects to maximise their learning experience.

Courses may be taken for free from tuition fees by audit students under the GLO@EAST promotion (registration fees payable).


Textbooks for the above courses are listed here. Please note that no additional copies of textbooks will be available for sale during class time besides those available with prior confirmed textbook orders.

Maximum Class Size

Each course has a class size limit whether online or onsite. You will be informed by the Registrar Office if the class that you seek to register has reached its maximum size.

Registration deadline is Tuesday, 17 May 2022.

Online registration of courses is available here.
