Apply For 2017

Are you self-motivated? Interested in studying from home or combining day classes with studying at your own pace?

If so, Flexible Learning at Newstead College may be for you!

The college provides an extensive array of level two and level three subjects which can lead to gaining your TCE or even an ATAR score for University Entrance. Students who have studied through Flexible Learning have achieved the highest results both at level two and three.

 Studying in this manner allows you to have greater flexibility for how you work and combining a flexible learning subject with your on campus studies allows you to, perhaps, pursue casual employment, participate in sporting endeavours or even travel. Many students have studied independently whilst travelling with their family, working part time or simply because travelling five days a week to college is difficult due to their location.

Whatever your situation, Flexible Learning can be “flexible”!!
