Deakin U has COVID-19 covered

Deakin U tells students that Trimester One is a wash-out for those of them not yet in the country, but that those overseas can study in the Cloud

This, Vice Chancellor Iain Martin says, is the choice of “a large majority of both our continuing and commencing Chinese international students currently out of the country”.

For students here, “I reiterate the current expert advice, that there is no need to adjust practices for engaging with staff, other students and visitors to our campuses,” he adds.

Perhaps Professor Martin might want to pass that on to staff. Last week the campus branch of the National Tertiary Education Union advised members, “given that in response to our recent inquiries the university hasn’t indicated whether any risk reduction measures will be adopted globally, we are asking all members to keep the branch informed if your area implements any risk controls.”
