Semester 1, 2022

What can I study remotely with Chisholm Higher Education College?

Chisholm is offering remote delivery for units from the following two qualifications for Semester 1, 2022

  • CRS1201286 (CRICOS 075246B) Bachelor of Engineering Technology
  • CRS1201285 (CRICOS 075248M) Bachelor of Community, Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs

Chisholm has redesigned its Bachelor programs to enable students to commence their studies whilst offshore. We recommend that students undertake the first year units remotely, with the expectation to finalise their qualification in Australia.

These units will also provide extra preparation for students in the areas of Maths, English Language, Study Skills, and introduction to tertiary studies in Australia.

You will be issued a Confirmation of Enrolment which will enable you to complete for the rest of your degree in Melbourne when borders re-open (subject to visa approval and Australian Government requirements at that time).

Delivery will be subject to minimum student numbers.

What is remote learning?

Chisholm is pleased to be offering a distance learning option for international students unable to travel at present.  The units have been selected which are best suited to “online” delivery but also to assist the student transition into the Bachelor programs.

You will be part of a virtual classroom with a group of like-minded students and an industry-expert teacher. Just like any conventional classroom, your teacher will guide you through the course content, lead group discussions and answer your questions. 

Your virtual classroom is where you will access all of your learning materials, watch weekly webinars and chat with your teacher and other students. You’ll learn through interactive activities, simulations, readings, and videos which can be accessed from your computer or tablet through our learning platform (“Moodle”).

Your teacher will guide you through the course material and answer questions as they arise.

Is there any discount for remote learning?

Yes!  Students that apply to study a full time load, will receive an A$1,500 discount for the first semester whilst studying remotely.

A full time load is when students enrol to undertake all units for that semester (i.e. as per below, three units for Bachelor of Engineering Technology or four units for Bachelor of Community, Mental Health Alcohol and Other Drugs).

We are also pleased to advise that we are also offering an additional A$1,500 in the subsequent semester under our second semester scholarship offering. Find out more about the scholarship. 

First semester discount will be applied to the students account upon acceptance of the offer.
