Curtin Dubai has successfully moved to an online interactive platform for classes to be held until the Government determines when face-to-face classes can resume.
The University is currently offering financial aid and support to those who have directly been impacted by COVID-19. You may read more about Curtin’s efforts here.
While the UAE government has lifted movement restrictions during the hours of 6am to 11pm and is allowing businesses to reopen with up to 30% of the staff on site, all schools and universities are still closed for face-to-face teaching until the end of the academic year (August 2020). While Curtin Dubai could open the campus for staff, in the best interests of minimizing any risk of infections, the campus will remain closed with the staff working remotely. All support services remain available for students and can be accessed by contacting the staff member directly or contacting email@example.com
With regard to the recent directive from the Ministry of Education, we will be extending online classes until the end of August 2020.
With effect from Sunday, 3rd May 2020, classes will be conducted through Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. Please ensure you have completed your enrolment for Trimester 2, 2020 to be able to access classes effectively.
