About ACCESS Victoria:
This is an opportunity to attend lectures in a mainstream Victoria University course without having to undertake any assignments or assessment.

ACCESS Victoria allows you to attend only the lectures for the course you’re enrolled in. You don't attend tutorials, do assessments or undertake any mandatory course requirements for the course.

Places are always subject to availability and mainstream students take priority. If the course does fill up and ACCESS Victoria places are no longer available we will contact you before the start of the course. 

You will have access to a Blackboard account (the University’s online learning tool) so you can view the lecture images, image lists or other material posted on the course page. Any Blackboard messages regarding tutorials, assignments, tests or exams are not applicable to Continuing Education students.

You will be sent a username and password by Continuing Education to allow you to access Blackboard. Please contact us at Continuing Education if you are experiencing problems with Blackboard.

You may use the University Library resources (hard-copy and electronic) in the library during opening hours, but you won't be able to withdraw books or journals and you cannot download ebooks or online articles from the library's electronic database.

Some courses have set texts which can be bought from Vic Books on the Kelburn Campus. Course notes can also be bought from Vic Books.
