COVID-19 response

ALC continues to closely monitor advice from the authorities regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and review its response in the interest of our community’s health and safety.

The College has lodged a COVID-Safe Plan with the Government of South Australia. All ALC students, staff and guests should familiarise themselves with the College's COVID-19 Action Plan prior to visiting the campus.

Any student or staff member who is in isolation or quarantine is asked to advise the Principal’s office. The ALC Principal reserves the right to exclude any person from returning to the ALC campus until he is confident that all quarantining and precautionary steps have been observed. This may include a requirement for COVID-19 testing.  

Study

Higher Education coursework

ALC will continue to deliver its higher education program in 2021 with a range of face-to-face and online learning options for all students.

All classes scheduled for the North Adelaide campus have the capacity to be live-streamed. In the event of personal reasons that may prevent participation in classes (including people in at risk, immune-compromised categories) students are asked to inform the Dean, Dr Stephen Haar, as soon as possible, so alternative arrangements can be made.

Where students are absent from class due to illness, provision will be made for students to either access classes remotely or receive additional one-on-one support from lecturers.

Access to resources on ARK and handling of enrolments and enquiries will continue as normal.
