COVID-19 UPDATES

AC is committed to the wellbeing and safety of our students and staff through these challenging times.

We have been actively planning for a return to campus as the COVID-19 restrictions ease and we will continue to update you.

Keeping our community safe is of the utmost importance, and each step in our return will be in line with government advice.

What is happening for Semester 2?

Based on the latest Government advice, we are planning for a gradual return to face-to-face teaching for students who can attend campus.

In our Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide campuses, some of our face-to-face classes will resume from week 1 of Semester 2 (week commencing 3 August).
For details on which classes (and courses these are part of), please contact the campuses directly. Brisbane: 07 3117 9188, Perth: 08 9355 0051,  Adelaide: 08 7127 1489.

For Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart and Auckland campuses, we will continue to provide our best online delivery for students who are not yet able to join us face-to-face,  including live stream or recorded options for various classes.

Online options are also available for all AC course, regardless of where students are located.

When we do return to campuses, face-to-face learning will meet required safe physical distancing measures and hygiene practices, as detailed in AC's COVID-Safe Plan. Subjects with required face-to-face delivery, such as Social Science and Education practicals, will also meet safe physical distancing measures and hygiene practices.

In this season, AC is fast-tracking admissions of new applications and new enrolments for Semester 2.
