The experience

Overview

Studying with MBS: On campus or wherever you are, we’ve got you covered

MBS will offer subjects in either dual-delivery or online only mode.

For students who are in Melbourne and able to attend campus, we’re excited to confirm that many subjects will be delivered using a blend of on-campus activities and online activities (dual-delivery).

For students who are unable to attend campus, please rest assured all MBS subjects offered will be delivered online. Further details are available in the Handbook.

Our Virtual Campus Community, including all of our University Services for students, are still running online. We are providing many ways to stay positive and connected online including working out with MU Sport, and ways to enhance your academic skills and appointments for counselling and wellbeing.
