Continuing forward and supporting our community
Since the impact of COVID-19, we have navigated through a complex and evolving situation. While uncertainty remains, what we do know is that we can blend our approaches to learning, working and research with on-campus and off-campus arrangements regardless of our physical locations.
Classes and seminars for all upcoming study periods will continue to be held online. We are currently planning for the gradual return of on-campus practical classes and other activities that require campus facilities. This will be subject to government and University guidelines.
We assure staff that the safety and wellbeing of our community is top priority. Please browse the large range of questions we have answered for you.
As we gradually increase our on-campus activities, we also expect an increase in visitors to our campuses. All visitors are to commit to contributing to a COVIDSafe environment.
