Study online now and on campus later.
The world is transforming, and so are we.
For international students we’ve launched a new term structure. From July, these terms will commence every six weeks, so international students can begin studying online now and be ready to join us on campus once borders reopen. Learn more about enrolment and eligible courses.
For domestic students, application for Semester 2 is open now. As the COVID-19 response evolves, the courses we offer, and how we offer them, may need to adapt. We now have more start dates than ever. Book a consultation, or call us if anything is unclear and we’ll be happy to help.
As the COVID-19 situation evolves, the courses we offer, and how we offer them will need to adapt. We continue to implement a COVID-Safe process that is guided by the Victorian Government. While we are working towards a gradual return to face-to-face activity at our campuses, we expect most learning activity will continue to be delivered online for the remainder of this year.
