16 April 2020 Coronavirus Update


There have been no reported coronavirus (COVID-19) cases at Box Hill Institute campuses as at 1.30pm, Thursday 16 April 2020. 

Term 2 has commenced and remote learning has been established for courses. Remote learning can be as equally valuable as face-to-face learning. Remember, it’s not your time on campus that measures your success, it’s the skills and knowledge you acquire, the outcomes you achieve, and the opportunities these present for your future.  

Student Code of Conduct

Remember, while engaged in remote learning the Student Code of Conduct still applies to all students to ensure the safety, comfort and well- being of everyone. Ensure your actions and words support teaching and learning, and respect yourself and others. You can refresh yourself on the Student Code of Conduct on the Box Hill Institute website.
