Person getting vaccinated

You will need two doses of the same vaccine, a few weeks apart, for it to be most effective. COVID-19 vaccines help protect you from getting very sick. Find out at how and where to get the vaccine at the Department of Health vaccination site.

Victoria COVID-19 update - online learning for the rest of 2021

Our Melbourne campuses will remain closed until further notice and online learning will continue in T3 until the end of the year. 

 

As soon as restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so, we will open campuses for practical classes and applied sessions, drop-in activities and for students to make use of shared facilities.

 

As previously advised, classes will continue to be delivered online for the full duration of T3 (Term 4 for BMHS students), until the end of the year.

What does this mean for you and your studies? 

  • Classes will continue to be delivered online for all of Trimester 3 (13 September-5 December) 
  • As soon as restrictions are lifted and it is safe to do so, we will open campuses for practical classes and applied sessions, drop-in activities and for students to make use of shared facilities. 
  • After you have selected your subjects, your lecturer will reach out to you with details about how to access your class online. 

We are, however, able to resume limited practical classes for our nursing students in Victoria at the Flinders Street Campus, commencing this week. Students and staff will be required to wear masks at all times whilst on campus and travel permits have been issued to students required to travel into the campus.

There are extra requirements for our nursing students to be aware of as well regarding vaccinations and their placements. Please ensure you keep an eye on the Nursing section of this page on the Student Hub

We will continue this approach of online learning to ensure consistency in your learning, and to provide you with certainty about the coming months. Please be assured that as soon as restrictions are lifted and it is safe to reopen campuses, you will have access to campus facilities. 

We know that for many of you, this may trigger a range of feelings and reactions. 

We are here to support you and we will continue to get through this as a community. If you need extra support during this time, please remember our Student Counselling Team are able to help you. 

You can also call Student Services on 1300 575 803 if you have any further questions.

If you would like company while you study, there are regular Virtual Study Groups available where you can connect with other students. Details available here.
