To keep the VU community safe, and to play our part in containing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made changes to how we deliver our courses.

We’ve transitioned most course units to an equivalent level, digitally-supported remote delivery model that students can access online.

Locations for 2021 have not yet been confirmed and are subject to government rules around COVID-19. The University will make a determination closer to the time classes start in 2021.

Current & new students

If you are a current student or are commencing your studies, please check your email for further details on your course and the details of how it will be delivered digitally and remotely.

Attend classes through Zoom & Webex classrooms

For most Block classes that previously required in-person attendance, you are expected to attend remotely and as scheduled through Zoom or Webex classrooms.

It’s still the same VU Block classroom environment – but you’ll view and attend it online.

Highlights of this method:

  • Teachers will share material through screen-sharing.
  • There’ll be a small number of students in each virtual classroom.
  • You’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions, get feedback and interact with classmates.

Get familiar with your digital learning space

Log in to VU Collaborate to plan how you’re going to attend these virtual classes – and for all other course-related information.

Your teacher will share clear instructions on VU Collaborate about any changes to the delivery of your unit, including whether your class will be run on Webex or Zoom.

Your VU Collaborate learning space also includes a range of other learning tools and materials to support you in your studies.

You can use the group and chat functions to chat to classmates and plan group assignments.

Classes in labs or spaces that can’t be replicated online

We have emailed a small number of students whose classes or labs can’t be delivered online. We have given them details on how their courses will be delivered or impacted.

All university activities, including classes, will continue to be managed and delivered in accordance with government advice on physical distancing.
