APTC will demobilise international students, where possible, this semester effective from Friday 20 March. We are making arrangements for the return of international students to their home countries as travel becomes available. Details will be communicated to students studying abroad through APTC’s student support and travel services.
All graduations have been cancelled until further notice. Please check the 2020 Graduation Dates webpage for further details.
