Restrictions to ease in Greater Geelong and the Surf Coast from 11.59pm, Sunday 26 September

Following the government announcement, restrictions for the Geelong and Surf Coast LGAs will be eased from 11.59pm tonight, Sunday 26 September

Despite these changes to restrictions, 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 and some final-year students attending experiential learning. 

The Premier also announced an easing of some statewide restrictions from 11.59pm, Tuesday 28 September. Read more about the impending slight easing of restrictions and the full table of restrictions at that time.

What about learning and other uni activities?

All classes and seminars remain 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. Students with permitted activities have been contacted in their unit sites or via Deakin email.

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

Experiential learning is still permitted for some healthcare and final-year students.

You no longer require a permit for these activities in regional Victoria, except if you’re travelling to metropolitan Melbourne or Mitchell Shire for permitted study reasons.

If you’re in metropolitan Melbourne, you still require a permit when travelling to undertake permitted learning activities.

A reminder that you will receive any required permit via email to your Deakin email address before the scheduled activity begins.

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. You will be contacted if you’re impacted.
