We are aiming for an incremental return to campus in accordance with guidelines provided by NSW Health and the Australian Government. Until this time, learning activities and assessments will be planned and scheduled for online delivery where possible, and unit-specific details about face-to-face teaching will be provided on Canvas as the opportunities for face-to-face learning become clear.

We are currently working to resolve an issue where some unit outline links are unavailable. If the link to your unit outline does not appear below, please use the link in your Canvas site. If no link is available on your Canvas site, please contact your unit coordinator.
