Please be advised that the Institute has recently implemented a visitor policy, in response to the COVID-19 situation.

We are asking visitors who have travelled to medium or high-risk areas under Federal Department of Health guidelines in the last 14 days to not visit the Institute. We have introduced this approach as a precautionary measure to support the health and safety of Institute visitors, staff, students and tenants.
