Student handbooks

Student handbooks are print publications produced for Government compliance purposes in the year preceding print. One is produced for each college. Some of the information may have changed slightly since printing.

On the handbooks page you can also find an archive of previous years student handbooks to look up a course you may have studied that we no longer offer.

Course delivery plans

Some colleges have also produced detailed course delivery plans in PDF versions which you may need at your enrolment session. The course delivery plans outline the course structure and show the correct number and type of units for course completion, especially important for courses with electives and specialisations.
