Not in Sydney?
Even if you don't reside in Sydney, you can still study with us. Our flexible block-delivery means you only need to attend face-to-face study for five to six days per subject each session (semester). The face-to-face sessions are usually in two blocks of consecutive days (two or three days each block, usually one to two months apart). The remainder of the session you will be actively involved in self-directed study and online discussions with your fellow students.
