Latest updates

From 6 am, 23 July 2021, South East Queensland will return to the same level of restrictions as the rest of Queensland, except for wearing masks.

You must wear a mask on all our campuses.

In all non-teaching areas, the one person per 2 square metre rule now applies. Please continue to maintain physical distancing of 1.5 m and practice good hand hygiene.

During these uncertain times, we want to provide you with the best possible learning experience

Discover adjustments we have made to our teaching and learning experiences, as well as investments in staff development, to ensure a successful study experience for all.

We also have a range of resources to help support your studies and general wellbeing.

Check in Qld app

Signage and posters with QR codes are now available across campuses to enable staff, students and visitors to check in using the Check in Qld app when coming onto any of our campuses. This is now a mandatory requirement to allow for contact tracing if required.

You can find these signs at the primary entrance to most University buildings, car parks and other select locations.

You only need to check in once as you arrive on campus, you do not need to check in at individual buildings. The only exceptions to this are hospitality venues, such as food outlets, retail shops, certain University clubs and events. You must check in at these venues as they have a unique QR code.

If you are unable to locate a QR code to check in when you arrive on campus, you can enter the relevant manual code into the Check in Qld app:

  • Nathan - 574552
  • Gold Coast - 571711
  • Logan - 571070
  • Mt Gravatt - 570486
  • QCA – 571568
  • Griffith Film School - 571483
  • Queensland Conservatorium - 082705
  • Burke Street Studios - 082682

Work placements

International work-integrated learning placements remain suspended for the time being, other than approved placements for students studying outside Australia due to border restrictions and able to undertake a COVID safe placement in their country of residence.

Domestic WIL placements will resume where it is safe to do so. Placements will only be permitted in organisations with a COVID-Safe Plan.

Investment in teaching development

Your program directors, course convenors, lecturers and tutors have been upskilled to further support students in online learning.

Their training has focused on:

  • learning collaboratively in Microsoft Teams and Blackboard Collaborate
  • using Echo software
  • teaching approaches to promote engagement with students in an online context
  • managing assessment in the current context to include support for students in maximising access to assessment
  • student wellbeing in learning.
