Teaching is now occurring online, so you do not need to change your units or course to online mode unless you are advised to do so by your Course Coordinator.

You should be aware of some of the risks associated with studying remotely abroad, including:

  • global travel restrictions are changing very rapidly and it may make returning for Semester 2 2020 very difficult;
  • we cannot guarantee that you will be covered by insurance;
  • we cannot guarantee access to online content from third countries given varied internet content restrictions in different countries.

The global situation and travel advice is changing rapidly. If you are considering international travel, we recommend you regularly check the DFAT travel warnings on the Smartraveller website, any travel advice issued by your destination country and any updates from your airline provider.

You can also contact your embassy or consulate in Australia.

Any unit withdrawn after the census date will still appear on your academic record and you will be financially liable for that unit. The grade that will appear on your record is a WN (Withdrawn Fail). 

Please note if the situation that caused you to withdraw is beyond your control, and made its full impact on you after the census date, you may wish to apply for a Re-credit of Unit/s and Refund of Fees in Special Circumstances.

If you need help with your application please contact the Student Advocacy Service.

If none of your subjects are available online then you will need to defer if you are a new student or take an International Interruption to Study if you are a continuing student. Please contact your International Student Adviser.

Please check the provisions of your home country on the recognition of your overseas qualifications. Many countries are considering adjustments as a result of the global pandemic.
