International students outside Australia
The International Student Arrivals Plan has been endorsed by the Victorian and Australian governments. We welcome the Australian Government’s announcement that fully vaccinated student visa holders will not require a travel exemption as of 1 December 2021.
Graduate researchers whose work cannot continue remotely should liaise with their supervisors and follow the process outlined on the Graduate Research Hub.
Teaching and learning for the remainder of 2021
Now that restrictions have eased, subjects will be delivered online, on campus or in dual delivery for the remainder of 2021. Check your timetable for the delivery mode of your classes. Subject coordinators will communicate directly with students enrolled in subjects with on campus activities about their specific arrangements.
Your studies in 2022
The University is working closely with the Australian and Victorian governments and our own health experts to get back to COVID-normal. We look forward to welcoming more students, staff and activity back to campus, and being reunited with our students studying overseas when it is possible to do so.
