If you can't find what you're after in the FAQs on this page, we're here to help:
Q: I am enrolled to study on campus, but classes are currently being delivered online. What subjects do I need to select?
It's important that you select your subject as per your normal study mode, whether you are a domestic or international student. This means that:
Please note that if you have selected on-campus subjects, you will be moved to on campus study as soon as face to face classes resume.
For the foreseeable future, we will continue to deliver all subjects online to ensure the safety of our staff and students while concerns about the spread of COVID19 remain.
Q: I am an international student, so I am only allowed to study one third of my course online. However, all of my classes are currently being delivered online, which means I will exceed this limit. Will this impact my student visa or my ability to graduate?
Due to COVID-19, authorities have provided assurance that exceptions are being made to the usual attendance requirements. This means that there is flexibility around the amount of study an international student is able to do online at present.
As long as students remain enrolled with their provider and the assessment requirements of the course allow it, authorities will be flexible on the location of the student, the mode of delivery, and accept that minimum face-to-face teaching requirements may not be met at this time.
When face to face classes resume, it is expected that some level of restriction to the amount of online study international students are allowed to undertake will be applied from the date classes resume.
Q: I know which subjects to choose, but need help enrolling online
Q: What subjects do I choose?
Q: I'm doing an industry placement - what do I need to do?
Trimester 2 will be delivered fully online. Let us explain why. Our first consideration is always the health and safety of our students and staff. This consideration will inform our future approach in responding to COVID-19. We will not transition classes back to face-to-face delivery until there is clear public health advice allowing us to do so. Most importantly, we will do so at a time that is least disruptive to your learning.
We are confident that our online education is of high quality and is equivalent to our face-to-face delivery. We feel assured that the quality of our online educational approach, our curriculum and teaching staff will ensure a successful Trimester 2.
For classes with combined theory and practical components, we will continue to deliver the theory classes and reschedule the practical classes when the campuses reopen. Where the practical component comprises the majority of the experience, including supervised student clinics, these will resume when the campuses reopen.
All decisions are centered on ensuring we maintain the same high quality of course and subject learning outcomes and meeting graduate professional standards.
We are currently working on a plan for all students who have a practical subject impacted and that cannot be replaced by an online component. There are many different scenarios depending on which subject it is and at what stage of your studies you are, so we ask for your patience while we find appropriate solutions. Your Program Director or Head of Nursing will advise as soon as possible. Please reach out with any immediate concerns.
With classes being delivered online or remotely, this will not affect your Student visa requirements. Because of COVID-19, authorities have provided assurance that exceptions are made to the usual attendance requirements. This means that you can remain in Australia and continue your studies or you can study from your home country.
We understand your concerns, however we can assure you that if you choose to continue studying your course here in Australia, you will be offered an equivalent online learning experience and your study path will not be compromised.
If you do choose to return to your home country or you already have returned you are able to continue to study online. The Australian Government Higher Education regulatory body TEQSA has allowed universities to teach their international students online during this period. You can also check information on the Home Affairs website about student visas.

International students are required to study full time
Students are expected to maintain a full-time study load, which means enrolling in at least three subjects per study period, unless on an approved leave of absence.
Your Course Structure will show the typical subject load for your course. For most students this is 8 subjects per year.
In total, international students can study up to one third or 33% of their course online.
International students must always maintain a minimum of one on campus subject enrolment per study period. Online subjects should be spread across the length of your course and not taken all in one trimester together.
The maximum time for you to complete your course will be stated on your Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).
