Learning and other uni activities

Our campuses remain closed, with access limited to essential staff and those students living on campus. Current exemptions still apply for health and biomedical science students, some final-year students attending experiential learning and vulnerable students

As previously advised, all classes and seminars will be online for the remainder of the current study period (Trimester 2/Semester 2) across all campuses. 

There may be exceptions for some health and education courses and for some permitted final-year experiential learning. We’ll notify you through your unit sites, by Deakin email and in your unit sites if this applies to you. 

Permits and permitted clinical placements, experiential learning and work-integrated learning

An Authorised Worker Permit will be required to attend placements, and access campus and childcare and early education centres in lockdown areas (except for the children of single parents and carers, who can access childcare).

Permits are required from 11.59pm on Tuesday 22 September. The University will distribute permits for Waterfront- and Waurn Ponds-based health and other students for onsite and placement learning activities in time for this requirement.

Your permit will be emailed to your Deakin email address before the scheduled activity begins. If you haven’t received your permit by 4pm on the day before your scheduled activity, check your unit site for confirmation you need a permit, and then contact Student Central.

Permitted student health and medical placements will continue where partner institutions remain open, including those beyond the 10-kilometre limit. Check your unit sites and Deakin email for information.

Work-integrated learning will continue online or be postponed. We’ll contact you if you’re affected.

Please continue to check your unit sites and Deakin email for updated information.
