Study options and timetabling from September 2021

We're really looking forward to welcoming our University community back to campus in September 2021, when we'll be focusing on in-person active and inclusive learning and teaching.

You’ll have lectures, seminars, practicals and workshops with your peers, with weekly course materials, activities and support through our Canvas platform; with online MS Teams areas to support group, tutor, and individual study activities.

The combination of on-campus learning supported by online content and collaboration provides the flexibility needed to make sure all students feel part of our community, regardless of their individual situation or needs and, importantly, allows us to quickly adapt if the Government asks us to at any given point.

With certain courses, you can choose to study online-only in Trimester 1 (September-December 2021) if you prefer.
