May – June 2024 Intensive Course


MAY – JUNE 2024

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

Almost all 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.

  • “Onsite” courses meet at EAST.
  • “Online” courses will have synchronous sessions held only online.
  • “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.).

Certain classes may require audit students to complete some assignments and/or in-class projects to maximise their learning experience.

Registration deadline for the intensive classes is Wednesday, 1 May 2024.
