Easing of restrictions in regional Victoria will commence as of 11.59pm, Monday 9 August

Regional restrictions will ease as of 11.59pm tonight, Monday 9 August, allowing our communities to reconnect and our regional campuses to re-open. 

Current restrictions still apply for metropolitan Melbourne and our Burwood Campus remains closed as per the August 5 announcement.  

What do regional Victorians need to know? 

What about learning and other uni activities?

All classes and seminars (all campuses) remain online until after the intra-trimester break, Monday 23 August; at which time, subject to restrictions, we will return to the normal timetable. 

In response to the easing of restrictions in regional Victoria, some experiential and practical learning opportunities will re-commence. It is essential you monitor your unit sites for the most up-to-date information.  

In metropolitan Melbourne, scheduled on-campus teaching, events and other activities remain paused, until 11.59pm, Friday 13 August. Experiential learning is permitted for some healthcare and final-year students. Please check your unit sites for the most up-to-date information.  

Clinical placements, other placements and work-integrated learning 

Approved student health and medical placements (including those beyond the five-kilometre limit, and regional students needing to enter metropolitan areas), will continue where partner institutions remain open. Check your unit sites and Deakin email for more information. 

In regional Victoria, work-integrated learning may return to face-to-face delivery, be offered online or be postponed. If you are affected, you’ll be directly contacted. 

Please note: our teaching teams are continuing to work hard to adapt and confirm all arrangements. Student activities can occur across the regional/metro divide without a permit. See your unit sites and Deakin email for updated information.
