Our campus is a Covid-secure environment and is currently open for a limited number of students, on specific courses. Covid-19 precautions are in place. Details of arrangements for the new term can be found here.

The University will be operating a testing centre for students who need to be on campus and who currently have no symptoms of Covid-19. Read more.

The information below is applicable to all current students including those from overseas, if you are an international applicant yet to enrol please consult the International Office applicant FAQ page.

It is really important that you swipe in to every face-to-face class that you attend so that we can contact you in the event of someone in the class reporting Covid-19 symptoms or having a positive test.
