As we approach the end of 2018, there are a few key updates to share with you:


  • ACAP will close for Christmas break from 12pm on Friday 21st December until 9am on Monday 7th of January 2019. During this time all Campuses will be closed, and the phone line and inboxes will not be staffed. If there is anything urgent you need before this date, we recommend that you reach out to us soon, if not we will return all enquiries after the 7th of January.


  • The Student Counselling Service will be closed on all campuses from Thursday 20 December, 2018 to Monday 7 January, 2019 inclusive. The Student Counselling Service will re-open on Tuesday 8 January, 2019 and will resume standard service days in Week 1 of Trimester 1 2019.


  • Classes for Trimester 1, 2019 start on week commencing Monday 4th of February 2019.


  • Enrolments for Trimester 1, 2019 are now open, and we do recommend enrolling sooner rather than later as class spaces can fill up. If you need any assistance in your enrolment or are unsure what options are available to you, then please contact us on 1800 061 199 and one of our team will be able to assist you.


We wish you all a happy, restful and safe holiday season, and we look forward to having you back in Trimester 1 2019.
