Classes

CIC has transitioned to an online learning environment, this means there will be no face to classes running. If you require assistance with your online learning environment please notify your lecturer via Moodle or e-mail onlinelearning@cic.vic.edu.au where we will provide you with further guidance.

Online options

Your online learning environment will be supported by a range of resources that will vary between units but may consist of learning summaries, video recordings and extra documents to aid in your learning.  All lecturing staff will be available online at scheduled class times to guide and support you through your studies. The online learning environment will be available through Moodle using Zoom.

Assessment

Assessment tasks will vary for each Unit but some of these may be moved online. Some assessment tasks may also be delayed or deferred to a later date pending the situation with COVID-19.  Please communicate with your Lecturer for Unit specific information. The best way to do this is through Moodle or Zoom.

OFFSHORE: Current and New Students

Please note that the Australian Government has closed entry into Australia for foreign visitors. This excludes permanent resident, Australian citizens and their immediate family members.

New Students currently Offshore

Starting from the August 2020 intake, CIC will allow some new offshore students to commence their studies online. The two main criteria for doing so are that the student has a visa granted and has the competency to undertake their studies online. All offshore students wishing to commence online will need to undertake a competency interview with a CIC staff member to check that they can attempt online units.
