Respect. Now. Always

Consent Matters: a free online course

Consent Matters is a free, online interactive and evidence-based course that uses activities, quizzes and relatable character scenarios and explores the nature of sexual consent, how to identify when it has been given and where it cannot be given.  This course teaches the importance of good communication, clear boundaries, and mutual respect.   

This course is for all adults.

The aim of the course is to provide students with the information and education to recognise difficult situations and possible ways of stepping in if you see or hear something that makes you uncomfortable or others need help.  It is about promoting positive change and ensuring that the university community is a safe and supportive environment for all. 

The module takes one hour to complete; however, it does not have to be completed all at once.  You can log in again and pick up where you left off. 

Sexual health and consent

Sexual health is something we should all think about.  Being sexually healthy is about having the information and support you need to explore sexuality and relationships in a healthy, respectful and safe way. CDU has a diverse student community with people coming from a range of backgrounds and cultures. Everyone may have had very different experiences thinking and talking about sexuality. Although sexual health might not be something you’re familiar with discussing, it’s important to know how to stay sexually healthy and safe whether you’re in a relationship or not.
