There’s no need to put your future on hold.

Our flexible learning options allow you to start your degree online now and study on campus later. Same world-class education, different mode of learning – with support every step of the way.

As COVID-19 impacts our community, our priority is continuing to deliver a world-class education while ensuring the wellbeing of our students. That’s why we’ve introduced our new term structure: allowing you a smooth entry to university study while remaining on track to complete your degree on time.

With terms starting every six weeks, you’ll commence your study online and be ready to join us on campus once face-to-face teaching resumes. More intakes mean greater flexibility to balance study with your other important life commitments. With the first term commencing in July 2020, you can get started on a degree sooner.

Whether it’s online or on campus, you’ll be developing the skills and knowledge your future employers are looking for.

We look forward to saying hello.

How does it work?

  • Find your ideal degree

    With undergraduate and postgraduate courses available in business, IT, engineering, health and science, you’re sure to find your ideal degree. See below for the full list of eligible courses.

  • Start studying online in July, September or November

    You’ll study two subjects per term and need to complete a total of four subjects (the equivalent of a full-time semester). After that, you’ll transition to Semester 1, 2021.  You can choose from three terms1 that run every six weeks from July 2020. For more information, refer to ‘Key dates’ below .

  • See you on campus soon

    When face to face teaching resumes, you’ll need to complete the term online. You can then transition to on-campus study in the next term at one of our campuses across Victoria.

    1. Please note: some courses do not offer an intake every term.
