On-campus subjects

Information about subject delivery modes will be updated on this page ahead of each new semester or major change in restrictions. As restrictions ease, we will continue with our gradual, phased approach to returning to campus.

Available subject delivery modes for 2021 will be published in the Handbook for each subject in late November 2020.

This page will be updated to reflect more information regarding subject delivery modes for 2021 subjects in late November 2020.

Throughout 2020, most students have had one of two different delivery modes for their subjects:

1. Subjects delivered online

For most subjects, all classes will be delivered online.

2. Subjects with essential in-person teaching

For a small set of practical and specialist subjects, there are essential in-person only activities (for example, a practical class or a lab) that must be attended in-person. Research projects needing access to specialised equipment and resources are managed on a case-by-case basis and students enrolled in these subjects should speak to their Subject Coordinator.

If your course plan includes subjects with essential in-person activities but you are overseas, interstate or in regional Victoria or you can’t attend campus for health or personal reasons, please book a course planning appointment to discuss your study plan options.

Returning to campus for essential in-person activities

Students enrolled in a subject with in-person activities will receive a return to campus email with detailed instructions about attending campus and important health and safety steps to take.

We are ensuring campus spaces are ready and safe for your return. Essential in-person classes are timetabled into appropriate spaces to enable physical distancing requirements in line with public health regulations. Signage, regular cleaning and hygiene measures are in place.

Informal study spaces are available for students who are unable to study from home. Details regarding these study spaces will be in your return to campus email.  Other students who require a safe space in which to study can contact Stop 1 for assistance.

Our return to campus page has information on what the transition back to campus for essential activities looks like, including the health and safety measures in place, and accessible facilities on campus. Make sure you familiarise yourself with this information so you’re ready when classes begin.

Assessments and exams

You will be provided with information on mid-semester assessments and exams for 2021 when we have further updates about how these will take place. Visit the COVID-19 updates and advice for students page for the latest information on assessments and exams.
