The on-going COVID-19 situation has affected students around the world. The good news is that compared to some other countries, Australia has fortunately managed to contain the situation so far with relatively minimal cases and deaths. The trend of new cases has also been gradually declining.
Australian institutions are doing everything to ensure that students are being well-looked after and there is minimal disruptions to their study plans. For example,
- Online studies are now available for almost all courses
- Scholarships and financial support are available
- Flexible academic penalty and refund policies
- Additional online support and resources for affected students.
For specific school policies and arrangements for students, please contact ACIC. We will be able to provide the latest updates from the schools.
