CHECK OUT OUR REFRESHED LOOK!
Keeping you at the centre of a new us!
For the past year, the team here at Australian Learning Group has been making an effort to put our students’ experience at the forefront of all that we do. In that time we’ve implemented initiatives such as; our “You Spoke, We Listened” campaign each term, a new and improved online Student Area with various support options, more student engagement events, and a ticketing system to manage and respond to your emails.
There is still plenty of work to be done, but we’d like to share that we’re taking the next step on the journey towards nurturing and empowering you on your path to a more meaningful career, by sharing the launch of our new look with you.

There are only 5 reasons you can leave home, and there is also a 5km travel limit in place. Masks are mandatory both indoors and outdoors, except for in your own home.

You must stay home. Only leave your home if you have a reasonable excuse. If you must leave home, stay within your local area. Do not travel outside your local areas if you can avoid it.
A message from Study NSW
This is a challenging time for everyone. We know that some international students are struggling to meet their living expenses. Given the global impact of COVID-19 many families and funding sources from students’ home countries have also been impacted.
Study NSW and the Australian international education sector are working hard to support the health, wellbeing, and academic success of international students. A key priority is to ensure that international students have information about the support services that are available to them in Australia – locally and nationally.
Welcome to Term 3, 2021! We hope you enjoyed the winter break and hope you are all managing to stay warm!
Firstly, welcome to ALG! We hope your first weeks here have been fun and interesting!
Please ensure that you have your USI entered on the student portal, as we require this in order to be able to issue any qualifications during your time with the Australian Learning Group.
In the orientation course on Canvas, ensure to upload a photo (jpeg format) for your student ID so that your Student Experience team will be able to print your ID’s and have them ready for you.
It is time to really get into the habit of reading through your prescribed readings and watching the recommended videos on your canvas schedule each week.
Make note of all your due dates as early as you can, so that you can organise your study time and plan ahead for the rest of the term.
Once you form that routine early, studying throughout the term will be easy, and you will find that you will start to process the information better once you get used to the same study routine each week. Please also remember to take care of yourselves physically, some light exercise, eating well, staying hydrated and taking vitamins will ensure you stay healthy, physically and mentally. This applies to all our students, whether you are on-campus or online.
Always remember; a healthy body means a healthy mind!
IF YOU ARE NOT YET SATISFACTORY FOR TERM 2, 2021:
