Facilities & Learning support

We have invested heavily in our campus facilities to provide purpose-built learning spaces for our students. The Whyalla campus features health laboratories, providing an optimised clinical training experience, along with simulated classrooms for education students to practise in-class activities. We have also invested in new campus upgrades totalling over $500,000, including a Green Screen Recording Studio and fully-equipped Technology Suite. There is also on-campus computer pools, study desks, meeting spaces, recreation areas and accommodation facilities.

Our students experience flexible learning and quality teaching with the benefit of a relaxed environment, practical learning opportunities, small class sizes, tailored support services and a strong community connection.

We take a practical approach to teaching and learning so that our graduates can make a real impact in their chosen field. Our students can take part in internships and placements, student exchange programs and volunteer opportunities during their studies. Our Career Services team is also there to support our students and get them ready for the workplace.

Engaged learning

Our students benefit from smaller class sizes. They receive more one-on-one time with our teaching staff and tutors, and additional support when needed. Our highly-experienced teaching staff are also there to help students studying a blended mode of on-campus and online learning.

High speed connectivity

The Whyalla campus is also home to one of the nation’s fastest network systems, ensuring that students are well connected and have access to the best internet speeds during their studies.

Student experience

It’s important that our students feel supported during their studies. Students have access to a full-range of services including study support, personal counselling, disability services and career services. Our Campus Central team is located on-site and can point students in the right direction. We also have tailored services for Aboriginal students including study assistance and mentoring opportunities.
