* New students attend one (1) of these orientation sessions only, which are held online. The sessions both have the same content and are approximately 45-60 minutes in duration. Times quoted are AEST / AEDT (Australian Eastern Standard/Daylight Time) and students located in different time zones attend at the equivalent time.

** Census date is the last day to withdraw from subjects or the course without academic penalty. Students will be eligible for a refund of tuition fees on or prior to the census date and will incur an administration fee of $350 for the first subject and $100 for each additional subject.
