"I think you will find this course as not a vocational course--not primarily a vocational course--but an intellectual course about how things really work."
what does intellectual course mean? what the difference between intellectual course and vocational course?
Re: intellectual course
This is a strange use of 'find ... as'. If people find it vocational, that's what they do (no 'as'). They might 'see it as <adjective>' and find out their perception is mistaken. They may also 'treat it as' something; but that would not fit this context: for example 'England will treat this as a warm-up match'.

Now - to answer the question! An intellectual course is one that involves and requires use of the intellect; a vocational course involves practical training in a skill required for a career.
