As we commence the new academic year, many students are wondering what studying in 2021 will look like.
The first half of the year will see dual delivery of subjects – some classes will be face-to-face, some online, and some will offer both on-campus and online options.
With more students coming on campus, we want to assure you that your safety is our priority. Check out our Studying in 2021 video for a detailed look at what you can expect at UOW this year.
To keep everyone safe, we ask that students familiarise themselves with the following measures:
- We strongly recommended students wear a face mask while in on-campus teaching rooms, or whenever 1.5m physical distancing cannot be maintained.
- If you’re feeling unwell, you must stay home. Anyone who attends campus and is displaying COVID-19 symptoms will be asked to leave and get tested. If you need help arranging transport to a medical centre or COVID-19 testing clinic, you can contact UOW Security.
For each on-campus class, students will be required to:
- Check-in via QR code
- Use the provided disinfectant wipes to clean their desk and any shared equipment before and after class. Staff in some teaching spaces such as laboratories will also be disinfecting benches between classes.
- Adhere to occupancy limits for classrooms.
- Listen to a pre-class briefing from teaching staff to remind students of physical distancing requirements, the importance of cough/sneezing etiquette, regular handwashing and the need to stay at home if unwell.
We also have up-to-date information on learning in 2021, coming on campus and accessing our services and facilities, on our website.
We’re really excited to welcome more students onto our Australian campuses this year. Safely returning our students and staff to a vibrant campus has been our ongoing priority.
We hope to see you on campus soon!
