The University will have as much face-to-face learning on campus in Semester 1, 2021 as it is safe for us to provide. At the same time, where possible, we will continue to offer remote teaching to those students who unable to join us on campus. 

  • Students who intend to attend classes in-person should select units of study that are located on campus.
  • If you are unable to travel to campus to attend classes, you should select units where the location is ‘RE’, meaning Remote. 
  • More information about selecting units is available on the Student website.

While we hope to be able to welcome all of our students back on our campuses soon, remote delivery of teaching and assessment will continue as long as possible for students who are overseas or otherwise unable to return to campus. 

Answers to frequently asked questions about studying in 2021 are available on the Study information page.
