Message from Professor Ian Anderson AO, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student and University Experience)

You will have seen the Vice-Chancellor's blog last Friday about the graduated return to campus, and I know many of you have seen the stages of return on the website. Some students will begin returning to campus from June 2 to make use of the specialised facilities on campus, such as laboratories and studios.

Subject to any community outbreaks, ANU will resume some teaching on campus from 27 July where CovidSafe arrangements can be adhered to, while continuing remote learning for students who are unable to return to campus. In Semester 2, 2020 we will have both on campus and remote learning and no student will be disadvantaged because of your location. You will receive more information from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) about Semester 2 teaching in coming weeks.
