In these arduous days, when Corona Virus (COVID 19) has been declared as worldwide threat, 3c has decided to provide you with the latest updates of Australian High Commission and Australian Universities. We have found that International students and the students who want to travel to Australia are facing immense level of difficulty in seeking out genuine news. Our team is continuously connected with different universities and also with the officials of DHA, to gather essential and useful information that we will be sharing on our official site on regular basis for your reference.
Current Situation in Australia on COVID 19:
The Department of Health, Australia, has confirmed 4,245 positive cases of COVID 19, till 3:00 PM on 30th March 2020. In these 4,245 cases 18 have demised from Pandemic. However, as per sources, the spread of COVID 19 has been halved in recent days. Cases have reduced from 25 percent to 13 percent and it is expected to diminish even more in coming days. Even so, the restrictions on social gatherings are still in practice and strictly followed by the Government.
Australian Educational Institutes’ steps On COVID 19:
The universities in Australia are showing their active support, by providing home assignments, online classes, relaxing the first-semester calendar and conducting the student help lines. The domestic as well as international students in Australia, who have enrolled for their courses, can get the perks of these facilities.
On the other hand, the educational institutes are actively responding on new applications. Therefore, students, who want to apply for student visa, can proceed with their admission and GTE processes. However, Visa Application Centres such as VFS in India will remain temporarily closed until further notice from the higher authorities. In the case, you have already got your visa and you have not travelled to Australia yet, you will have to contact your university. They will provide you possible solutions and deferment of studies and other study related policies.
Here, we have provided some of the latest updates about different universities, during this outbreak

CQ University is continuously working to support the admissions and study plans for the international students. The students, who have their visa but are not able to travel to Australia, can study online from their home country.

Once student will be able to travel to Australia, the online enrolment will be transferred to on-campus course.
