- The University welcomes recent Victorian Government announcements which will see our operations move from a Heavily Restricted status to Restricted. We continue to plan for the return of a small number of additional students from November for essential face-to-face teaching and learning activities that cannot be completed remotely, as well as an increase in research and operational activities requiring access to campus. We are reviewing our existing plans and will communicate changes to affected students and staff as appropriate.

We continue some priority campus-based research in compliance with government and health advice.
We offer a range of support packages for students experiencing unexpected financial challenges because of COVID‑19.
Graduate researchers nearing the end of their candidature and those with projects affected by the pandemic will have their candidature and stipend automatically extended.
We introduced a range of COVID‑19 related workplace entitlements to support our staff.
