Statement from Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Zlatko Skrbis on the safe return of international students to NSW
Australian Catholic University (ACU) welcomes and supports the NSW International Student Arrivals Pilot Plan for the gradual and safe return of international students to New South Wales.
ACU has been working collaboratively with the State Government, Study NSW and other representatives from across the education sector on the development of this pilot for more than 18 months.
The pilot clears the way for the university to safely return our international students back to NSW so that they can continue their studies on campus in North Sydney, Strathfield and Blacktown.
ACU continues to actively collaborate with the relevant state and territory officials on plans to return international students to Victoria, Queensland and the ACT, and looks forward to providing further information when updates become available.
Our more than 3,400 international students from more than 90 countries are much-valued members of the ACU community. The wellbeing of all our students remains our top priority, and we are working closely with authorities to ensure appropriate support structures are in place to facilitate their safe return.
Details of the NSW International Student Arrivals Pilot Plan will be published to the FAQ section of the ACU website here as soon as it becomes available.
The Study NSW website is also a useful source of information regarding the return of international students, and I encourage you to access the website for any further updates.
We're available 9am–5pm AEDT,
Monday to Friday
