Metropolitan Melbourne lockdown restrictions have been extended – what this means for students

Current Metropolitan Melbourne restrictions remain in place for a further seven days until 11.59pm, Thursday 10 June, with a couple of minor changes:

The five reasons you can leave your home remain:

  1. Shopping for necessary goods and services.
  2. Authorised work or permitted education.
  3. Care-giving, compassionate and medical reasons.
  4. Exercise: a two-hour limit with one other person.
  5. To get COVID-19 vaccinated – it is strongly recommended all eligible people get their vaccination.

Teaching and learning activities for the next seven days

All exams scheduled to commence next week, Monday 7 June, will continue as planned, including on-campus exams.

All on-campus teaching and learning activities (excluding exams) continue to be paused or deferred, except for permitted medical, nursing, midwifery and allied health students undertaking critical training and examinations.

Approved student health and medical placements, including beyond the 10km limit, will continue where partner institutions remain open and will be managed directly by the schools. Work integrated learning will shift to online or be postponed. Students impacted will be directly contacted through your unit site or by a Work Integrated Learning Coordinator.

Trimester 2/Semester 2 learning

T2/S2 teaching and learning planning is continuing. Read more about what your T2/S2 learning experience will be, subject to government restrictions. The STAR provisional timetable will be available on Monday 14 June and open for preference entry mode at 10am on Monday 21 June.
