Covid-19 Advisory

Our campuses will progress to the next phase of our calibrated resumption of more face-to-face classes from Monday, 21 September 2020. You will no longer be required to make prior appointments for certificate collection, Cashier payment or Learning Resources Centre loan services.

Our communication channels remain open to you. Please stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to meeting you again when it is safe to do so.
