Class Summaries

A Class Summary is produced for each course. This document contains vital information including materials, texts, learning outcomes, and details on assessment and must be read by the student. It is available on ANU Programs and Courses and the Wattle course site at least two weeks prior to the course start date.

WATTLE Course Sites

WATTLE (Web Access To Teaching & Learning Environments) is an online learning environment used to facilitate learning, communication and collaboration, and is used to make lecture notes, readings and other learning resources available to students online.

Each course has its own Wattle site which you must access. You will have access to the sites of the courses you are enrolled in approximately two weeks prior to the commencement of the course. Course Study Guides, course materials, ebricks, resources, discussion forums, quizzes and online activities can all be accessed via each Wattle course site. Assessments will be submitted electronically on the course site. It is your responsibility to regularly check your University email account in order not to miss vital information. The University is not responsible if a student cannot access their ANU email or forwarded email at their place of work.

Mode of Delivery

Courses under this program are delivered entirely online, offering the unique opportunity to customise your studies around your professional and personal commitments.

Course Cancellation

Students will be notified by email as early as possible when a course has to be cancelled or changed. Every effort will be made by the ANU College of Law not to cancel courses unless absolutely necessary or due to circumstances beyond our control.
