Program and course options for international students affected by travel restrictions

Wednesday March 24

This page provides key information and advice for students affected by the COVID-19 travel restrictions who are enrolled in or considering in enrolling in programs and courses in Semester 1 2021 that have face-to-face learning or on-campus attendance requirements.

RMIT is committed to ensuring no students are disadvantaged regardless of how and where they study.

We understand that for international students who are impacted by the COVID-19 travel restrictions, there may be uncertainty about whether they can complete their programs and graduate on time.

Where possible, RMIT is offering alternative learning options for affected higher education and vocational education students. Depending on the program and its requirements, this may include different learning activities and assessments, conducting face-to-face studies at RMIT’s Offshore Learning Centres in their home country or guiding students through different program pathways to complete their studies at pace.

For some programs, such as some with accreditation requirements, these options may not be possible to be implemented.

Please see below for detailed information on the status of potentially affected programs, advice for international students and who to contact for further information.

Students should be aware that if they cannot attend campus, this may result in delays to their progression and program completion.

Students enrolled in double degrees or degrees with courses from different disciplines may need to check information from different Colleges depending on their chosen disciplines.
