Our thoughts continue to be with everyone directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we hope that you are staying healthy and safe, no matter your location.
Like everyone, we continue to monitor the situation daily. With Australia now working through its three-step road map to easing restrictions, we are all now in a position to put a much greater focus on the immediate future. We have provided some resources to help guide decisions for Semester 2 and beyond.
HELPING OUR RESIDENTS STAY HOME
Increased cleaning and hygiene, faster unlimited internet, weekly laundry credit, toilet paper and soap drops, and free food events are just some of the ways we are helping residents stay home.
PUTTING SAFETY & WELLBEING FIRST
The health, safety and wellbeing of our team and residents remain our highest priority and we have a range of proactive measures currently in place to help safeguard everyone in our Iglu community.
AT A GLANCE – COVID-19 IN AUSTRALIA
To date, Australia has minimised the spread of COVID-19 with some of the world’s highest testing rates, lowest per capita case numbers and a widely downloaded COVIDSafe App.
Roadmap to a COVIDSafe Australia
The Australian Government recently released its detailed 3-step COVIDSafe Roadmap which includes plans for universities to increase face-to-face learning where possible and allowing international students to enter Australia to study as early as mid-July 2020.
WHAT UNIVERSITIES ARE DOING
As part of Australia’s COVIDSafe roadmap, many education providers are working through their plans to welcome students back to campuses in phases from mid-August. If you’re not sure what your university has planned Study in Australia has a helpful directory.
STUDENTS CAN PLAN WITH CONFIDENCE
While there is still uncertainty with travel for international students, our NO TRAVEL offer will allow them to secure a room for Semester 2 now and defer their contract start date up to 30 September 2020 if travel restrictions prevent them from travelling to Australia.
