In the interest of staff and student safety, City Lit has been closed to students until further notice. All face to face teaching and support sessions have been suspended.
We will not be holding any bursary panels until we have clarification on our Term 3 schedule.
Any online applications received will be held and reviewed once the panel can be resumed.
