Our approach to delivering programs on campus


Rebuilding a vibrant campus for all

We have enjoyed welcoming many of our students to campus for the first time in 2022, and welcoming many others back, as we returned most of our teaching activities to campus.

We continue to carefully manage on-campus activities, guided by our agreed principles and priorities and COVIDSafe plans and settings, while also delivering a range of teaching and learning, research and support services online to ensure fair and equitable access for everyone.

We encourage everyone to get involved in campus life through our festival of activities and events, and explore new spaces like the Student Pavilion, Science Gallery and Melbourne Connect, and the drop-in study spaces and many other facilities on our campuses.

We will continue to monitor government and public health advice, and provide updates as needed.

Activity/groupCOVIDSafe Settings
Teaching and learning
  • On-campus face-to-face learning, particularly small and medium group classes
  • Students and staff are expected to wear face masks in classroom settings until the end of winter 2022, except where removing a mask is necessary for clear communication or when a particular activity requires the removal of a mask (existing exemptions continue to apply)
  • In 2022, subjects are being offered in one of three delivery modes – online, on campus and dual delivery
  • From Semester 1, 2023 we anticipate that most programs and subjects, particularly at the undergraduate level will be predominately delivered face-to-face. Dual delivery and online modes may continue to be available for some postgraduate courses and individual subjects.
