Programs and courses

We understand this is a difficult time and we thank everyone for their continued patience as we work through every program and course for our impacted students.


Advice for students currently in Australia

All face-to-face learning and teaching activity on our Australian campuses has been suspended. 

Higher Education

  • All face-to-face learning and teaching activity is suspended.
  • Lectures are now available online. Students should log into Canvas to view or download their lecture content.
  • Tutorials, seminars and workshops will be delivered online by 30 March. Some classes may be available online earlier. When available, students should log in to Canvas to engage with their studies remotely, as instructed by their course coordinator. Catch up options will be provided to students whose classes are not available online prior to campus closures.
  • Specialist classes, including labs, technical workshops and studios will be delivered online where possible or delayed and offered in intensive mode at a later date when appropriate. Please check Canvas regularly for updates about the delivery of your classes, or reach out to your course coordinator if you have questions.
  • Class alternatives and solutions will be communicated directly to students via Canvas with the aim of ensuring students are not disadvantaged in completing their learning requirements for the year.
  • All existing Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placements will be deferred, unless otherwise advised. 
  • We are continuing to explore alternative assessment delivery including exams, while ensuring we continue to meet regulatory requirements. Decisions relating to assessments will be subject to future announcements.

Vocational Education

  • All face-to-face learning and teaching activity is suspended.
  • Where there are lectures or theory sessions, they are now available online. Students should log in to Canvas to attend class remotely as per the original class timetable.
  • For applied experiences, content will be delivered via remote learning from Monday 30 March wherever possible. Where this is not possible, they will be postponed to a later date.
  • Where online delivery is not possible, practical and lab-based classes usually held on campus will be postponed for Semester 1 and intensive sessions to help students catch up will be scheduled for a later date. 
  • All existing WIL placements will be deferred, unless otherwise informed. Further information will be provided in the coming days.
  • Due to regulatory requirements for assessment, participation and attendance, we are working with regulators to ensure compliance while working hard to minimise disruptions to students’ studies.
  • Any rescheduled dates for intensive practical assessments will be established when students are able to return to campus.

  • The majority of research infrastructure will be transitioned to a status where it can remain safely in a lock-down state for an extended period of time.
  • There will be a few exceptional research areas where access needs to be maintained during the campus closure period to manage critical risks.
  • Our objective is to minimise the disruption to research programs within the prevailing constraints. As the situation evolves over the coming weeks and months, we will be adjusting how we conduct research activity.
  • Separate, more detailed communications will be sent to the research community, including Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students, HDR supervisors, academics, post-doctoral fellows and research fellows.
