Business and law courses in the city: key dates

For students who take only business or law courses, this means all of your classes will be in the new building. Others, such as those who have chosen business or law courses as electives, will visit the NeW Space in the City to take those classes.

During trimester 2, business and law postgraduate courses will continue to be taught in University House. Business and law postgraduate students will move into NeW Space from September 2017 to start trimester 3.

  • Business and law undergraduate courses move from Callaghan and start in NeW Space from semester 2
