What your learning will look like in Trimester 2/Semester 2

With only a few weeks left of Trimester 1, we hope you’ve been enjoying our new blended model of study. This has combined the social interaction and connection of on-campus group learning, and the flexibility of studying online.

Following the full relaxation of COVID-19 density restrictions, we are excited to offer you more on-campus learning activities in Trimester 2/Semester 2.
From T2/S2, units listed as on-campus will have a majority of scheduled activities located on campus or other relevant sites. This includes timetabled classes, seminars, regular consultations and supervised activities like placements, fieldwork, study tours and research activities. Some units may have 100 percent physical attendance requirements. Make sure you check your timetable and unit sites to see how your particular learning activities will work.  
Throughout 2021, teaching teams are working to gradually redesign and implement scheduled activities that allow for greater interaction across both online and on-campus modes of learning.

Your provisional T2/S2 timetable will be available on 14 June, and you’ll be notified of any further arrangements in your unit site. Stay tuned for more information about this soon.

Exams will stay mostly online

In 2021, we’re continuing with online exams, including for open-book exams, online quizzes, and take‑home exams and assignments.

We’ve seen a number of benefits from online exams, such as improved student access and better learning outcomes. For example, this model helps us to assess how you apply your learning rather than just memorise facts and figures. This will make you far better prepared for your future career.

On-campus exams will be restricted to those required for professional accreditation or using specialist learning spaces. If you need any special arrangements for your exams, don’t stress – you’ll be supported as usual.
