COVID-19 has required changes to the operation of the University for health and compliance reasons from
time to time. This means that your course or parts of your course may be delivered differently to the standard
description in this guide. Changes might include remote or blended modes of delivery, changes to campus
operations, assessment methods and the way we deliver support services. For the latest information,
including about delivery modes, make sure to regularly visit sydney.edu.au/courses and
sydney.edu.au/study/international-students.

Most changes are intended to be interim arrangements to safeguard the health of our community while
allowing students to continue their studies where possible. If your course is available to commence remotely,
