Digital Learning

You can apply to the University of Adelaide College with complete confidence. We are committed to online delivery of all our programs for the remainder of 2020. Once travel restrictions are lifted, we look forward to welcoming you on campus.

MY STUDIES

We are committed to proceeding with all programs and intakes as advertised. While borders remain closed, orientation, registration and delivery will be offered online.

Once face to face classes are able to resume, offshore students will be required to travel to Australia to continue their studies as soon as possible. We understand that for some students this may take some time, noting they will still need to apply for their visa. With our commitment to online delivery for the remainder of the 2020 Academic Year (concluding Feb 2021), this will allow students to continue with their studies until they are able to travel.

Students in the Degree Transfer and Pre-Master’s Programs with University course enrolments are subject to University decisions about online delivery in Semester 2 2020. As the University delivers its decisions we will communicate these to students immediately.

Please keep in mind that the College and the University’s priority is to support students to study wherever they are in the world until the travel restrictions are eased.

Start by activating your University student account using the information from your ‘Welcome Email’, sent by the University of Adelaide.

The academic team will contact you at your University student email to advise you what to do for each class. Please make sure to check your emails daily for information and instructions. If you are unable to access your student email, please inform collegeservices@adelaide.edu.au who will be able to help you.

It is critical that your contact details are up to date. Please log in to Access Adelaide now to complete your checklist or update your contact details if they have changed.

Your classes will be held on Zoom. Click here to download and set up your Zoom account.

Please tell us if you are not able to undertake online learning because you don’t have a computer or internet connection. Email collegeservices@adelaide.edu.au and we will help you.

The University of Adelaide is also moved to an online delivery from 23rd of March 2020.

Your Course Coordinator or tutor will be contacting you to advise how you will access your learning materials, how your assessment will be managed, and any other changes that you need to be aware of.

See the University’s Resources for Supporting Remote Learning. Scroll down to ‘Students’.

We understand that you may be worried about studying online. Please be assured that the College is delivering your classes online with our full support.

You will have access to live classes and will be able to meet with your teachers online via video/Zoom. You will also be able to access recordings online to watch again if you need to, or if you miss a live class.

Your assessments will all be adjusted to suit the online learning environment. For example, your test may be ‘open book’, or you may have a video meeting with your teacher to work together on an assessment to demonstrate your learning. Your teachers will tell you in good time how you will undertake assessment. You can always contact them to ask questions as required.

Your Student Services team are also online to support you, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you need more support at collegeservices@adelaide.edu.au or by appointment online.

We are here to make sure that you are successful in your studies and that you progress to the University of Adelaide as planned.

Assessments that students will undertake while studies are being completed online will be submitted through the online Learning Management System.

MY ENROLMENT & VISA

While our aim is to support you to continue your studies as normal wherever you are in the world, if you are in Australia, we encourage you to stay so that you can return to campus as soon as it reopens.

Please be mindful of your capacity to study online from your home country. For example, if you cannot access your student email from your home country you need to make sure your personal email address is correct. Please login to Access Adelaide (www.access.adelaide.edu.au) now and update your contact details if they have changed.

Degree Transfer students (not Business students) are subject to University of Adelaide’s decisions about face-to-face practicals. DTP non-business students should contact Student Services and seek their advice before making plans to return home.

The College understands that students will have unique circumstances and we will work with each student on a case-by-case basis when considering refund requests.

The College’s refund policy can be found here: https://college.adelaide.edu.au/about/policies-and-procedures/

If you wish to defer, you will need to complete the Request for Deferral or Suspension of Studies

If you wish to apply for a refund, you will need to complete the Request for Refund form

In normal circumstances, our international students have restrictions on the number of courses/subjects that they can enrol online. However, the Department of Education, Skills and Employment has encouraged providers to consider flexible arrangements for students in these special circumstances, and the governing body, TEQSA, has been notified of our intention to temporarily move all our programs to an online learning environment.

With the move away from face to face classes, the College wants to reassure students that we understand that there may be some challenges with attending all online classes (for example, due to living in different time zones).

During the online delivery period, UoAC policies around participation, reasonable adjustment and special consideration are still being followed. If you are unable to participate in your classes (or access recordings), or unable to take an assessment, please notify your teachers immediately.

Your participation with materials and online content will be used to assess your engagement with the program for the purposes of assessing whether you are meeting your visa requirements.

DATES

If you are a new student who is unable to commence classes, please contact college@adelaide.edu.au

If you are a continuing student who is unable to recommence classes, please contact collegeservices@adelaide.edu.au

The College will provide updates in line with decisions made by the Australian Government about when social distancing rules and travel bans will be lifted.

While the details are yet to be confirmed, if travel restrictions are lifted before 1 July 2020, then we would expect to see you on campus for face to face studies in Semester 2. If travel restrictions are not lifted by 1 July 2020, classes will continue to be delivered online.

The College understands that once travel restrictions are lifted there may be some delays in returning to Australia due to airline capacity. As always, if you have any trouble meeting College requirements, just contact us and we will work with you to find a solution.

We will communicate with you closer to the time and as the situation becomes clearer.

Earlier this year, the College made the decision to change the semester start dates in the best interest of the College community as a whole.

A number of Australian universities and other pathway colleges have made the same decision to delay the start of their semester dates in February and March.

It is important to remember that the end date of your College program will not be affected, and the changes do not affect your ability to progress to the University of Adelaide on your original study plan. You will not require new Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) because the end date of your program is unchanged.
