Campus Restrictions


The latest Stage 3 restrictions for Victoria have come into effect and this means there are only four reasons to leave your home: food and supplies, medical care, exercise, and work or education. These restrictions will be reviewed after four weeks.

As an education provider, the direction we have received from the Department of Education and Training remains unchanged.

Building Consolidation

With the beginning of the term break, there has been a significant reduction of staff and students on campus and we have been taking into consideration the implications for security needs, fire wardens, first aiders and operational requirements. As a consequence, we are implementing measures to limit access to a certain number of buildings.
