Increasingly, we are living in a world where people already expect to be able to do most things anywhere, anytime. By enhancing our offering of virtual teaching and learning environments, we will provide staff and students a greater level of flexibility to balance their studies and work with other life commitments and responsibilities.

Simulation centres support our blended learning environment model and prepare students in a safe environment for the reality of the workplace.

We are proud sector leaders in low energy consumption and water usage. Our commitment to sustainability means doing all this with the least impact on our natural environment.
