During ACT’s lockdown, the University does not plan on implementing a pause in teaching to accommodate students’ transition into online learning. 

In March 2020, the ANU decided to pause coursework for one teaching week. However, as the University is already equipped with the process and measures needed to enable remote study, 2021 will not have a pause in coursework. 

According to an ANU spokesperson, “[a]ll students are able to study remotely this semester. Some classes may be postponed or modified and students should talk with their course convenors for clear direction as this will be specific to each course.”

Moreover, “[a]ny student who feels their studies have been disrupted due to the lockdown can discuss this with their course convenor and their Associate Dean of education. Our normal academic special consideration processes also remain in place.”
