Move to Open Foundation

As you have not completed Academic Literacies 1 (a core course only offered in Semester 1 each year) you will not be able to meet the Newstep program requirements by the end of 2019.

We recommend you change to Open Foundation.

Withdrawing from the Newstep Program and applying to the Open Foundation Intensive Program, commencing in Semester 2, means you can complete your Foundation Studies at the end of 2019!

What should you do now?

  • If you do wish to change to Open Foundation, please complete and submit the online application here ASAP - by Monday 15 July.
  • Continue to check your student email over the break for more information about enrolment and class registration.
  • Enrolment for Semester 2 2019 courses is now open. Class Registration will open on Monday 15 July, which is when you will select your class times.
  • Mark the Semester 2 start date in your calendar - Classes begin Monday 29 July 2019.
