Program and course information
From 30 June 2023, Frontier Education will progressively transition all remaining online classes in on-campus programs back to face-to-face, on campus delivery.
Commencing from the 30th of June 2023, Frontier Education is embarking on a gradual transition to reinstate in-person, on-campus delivery for the remaining online classes within our programs.
In response to the uncertainties brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Frontier Education (FE) made the decision to temporarily shift to online class delivery. This measure was adopted to prioritize the safety of both our students and staff, and it proved effective in safeguarding our community. As the global and local responses to the pandemic have evolved, we have observed the careful return of numerous on-campus classes and activities.
As of the term 1 of 2023, the majority of classes in FE programs are already being conducted in-person on our campuses. However, a few courses are still offering select online classes during this transitional phase. In alignment with the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), which updated its guidelines for fully online delivery to overseas students in October 2022, all education providers are expected to adhere to the ESOS National Code by the 30th of June 2023, when practical and safe conditions permit. Consequently, FE will be progressively moving the remaining online classes within on-campus programs back to face-to-face, on-campus instruction starting from the aforementioned date.
While the majority of courses will return to face-to-face classes, there may be isolated cases where certain courses are unable to make this transition by the start of July 2023.
The essence of the Frontier Education experience is rooted in hands-on practical learning. The reintroduction of on-campus class delivery enables students to benefit from the supportive staff, enriching learning environments, dedicated equipment, and the multitude of vibrant extracurricular opportunities that extend beyond the classroom, encompassing student events, fitness amenities, library facilities, and more.
While classes will once again take place on campus, digital learning will continue to be an integral aspect of the FE learning journey. Students will retain access to the Learning Management System (LMS) to retrieve digital learning resources, such as readings and videos, to bolster their educational endeavours.
For students located outside of Brisbane, Cairns, Adelaide, and Hobart: For the majority of students already attending classes on campus, the transition to full face-to-face class delivery will not affect their current learning experience. However, for the smaller subset of students studying remotely from locations outside of the mentioned cities or even outside of Australia, we encourage proactive planning for a return to Brisbane, Cairns, Adelaide, or Hobart to sustain your studies. This aligns with the directives outlined in the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act and the Australian Government's announcements in October 2022, which mandate international students with Australian student visas to resume their studies in Australia from the 30th of June.
Frequently asked questions

Alternatively, if the decision is not to attend on-campus classes whatsoever, contacting Frontier Education to explore options such as program cancellation or complete withdrawal from studies is recommended.
