It’s important that you keep in touch with your education provider.
On Sunday 22 March, the Premier announced additional steps to combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), including bringing forward the school holidays in Victoria to start from Tuesday 24 March.
Early childhood education and care services, TAFE and training providers currently remain open. Many universities, TAFEs and training providers are transitioning to remote learning models to meet physical distancing requirements.
Contact your education provider to ask what your options are during this time, such as moving to online study, deferring your enrolment, managing your payments, or accessing extra student supports or financial assistance.
You can find coronavirus information for a number of education providers in Victoria below. If your education provider’s coronavirus information page is not on the list below, view the full list of Australian providers here or contact them directly.
