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 

Most face-to-face learning and teaching activity on our Australian campuses has been suspended until further notice. A gradual and phased return to campus is currently underway. Limited campus access is now available for the practical components of selected courses. 

 

Priority learning activities returning to campus

  • As Government restrictions ease, we’re prioritising the transition back to campus of essential practical-based learning activities, labs, studios, research activities and ‘make-up’ activities that in some circumstances cannot be replicated online. Course Coordinators and Program Managers will provide information directly to students currently enrolled in these courses, including key dates and timetables.
  • This decision applies to the practical components of these courses only. All other learning and teaching will continue remotely.

 

Higher Education

  • Most face-to-face learning and teaching activity for Semester 1 remains suspended, with some limited campus access available for priority practical-based learning activities under strict physical distancing and hygiene requirements. Every student is required to complete the mandatory COVIDSafe training before returning to campus in Semester 1. These return to campus decisions currently apply to the practical components of learning only - all other activity is continuing remotely. Further information has been provided directly to students. Face-to-face learning and teaching activity for all other courses and programs remains suspended.
  • Lectures are available online. Students should log into Canvas to view or download their lecture content.
  • Tutorials, seminars and workshops are available online. 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.
  • Specialist classes, including labs, technical workshops and studios are being delivered online where possible or offered in intensive mode at a later date where 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 continue to be communicated directly to students via Canvas with the aim of ensuring students are not disadvantaged in completing their learning requirements.
  • All existing Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placements have been deferred, unless otherwise advised. 
  • All lectures and tutorials will be delivered remotely in Semester 2, with some campus access available for priority practical-based learning activities. Course Coordinators will provide information directly to students currently enrolled in these courses, including key dates and timetables. Every student is required to complete the mandatory COVIDSafe training before returning to campus in Semester 2.

 

Vocational Education

  • Most face-to-face learning and teaching activity remains suspended, with some limited campus access available for selected courses under strict physical distancing and hygiene requirements. Every student is required to complete the mandatory COVIDSafe training before returning to campus and only students who have been directed to return to campus should attend. These return to campus decisions currently apply to the practical components of learning only - all other activity is continuing remotely. Further information has been provided directly to students enrolled in these programs. Face-to-face learning and teaching activity for all other courses and programs remains suspended.
  • Classes are available online. Students should log in to Canvas to attend class remotely as per the class timetable.
  • For applied experiences, content is being delivered via remote learning. Where this has not been possible, these experiences have been postponed.
  • Where online delivery has not been possible, practical and lab-based classes usually held on campus have been delayed and intensive sessions to help students catch up are being scheduled for a later date. 
  • All existing Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placements are deferred, unless otherwise informed.
  • Due to regulatory requirements for assessment, participation and attendance, we are continuing to work with regulators to ensure compliance while working hard to minimise disruptions to students’ studies.
  • Any rescheduled dates for intensive practical assessments are currently being established.

 

Research

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