Student COVID-19 health restrictions update – 25 October

The Government has deferred announcing any further relaxation of COVID-19 health restrictions in Metropolitan Melbourne while State health officials assess test results connected to an outbreak in Melbourne’s northern suburbs.

Existing arrangements for students will continue at our Metropolitan and regional campuses.

Arrangements are being finalised to reissue travel permits to those students who require them.
