Swinburne delays census and promises “a fantastic student experience”

Students “will have more time to adapt to studying online”

Census dates were March 31 and April 3 and now they are April 15. “We are confident that our experience delivering high-quality online education means you will be able to successfully transition to a new learning environment. We hope this decision will support you to continue your studies with that same confidence,” says VP students Andrew Smith.

But unless students withdraw by the 15th, they will owe the feds for their course costs. “We are confident our students will continue to receive a fantastic student experience, regardless of mode of study. We are not refunding or reducing fees,” the COVID-19 student FAQs state (as of 4pm yesterday).
