This page will be regularly updated with the latest information and the College’s response to COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Page updated 27 May 2020
The College is taking a proactive approach to managing the impacts of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.
Staff and student wellbeing is the primary factor in all our decision making about COVID-19, and our focus remains the safety of the College community (see below for student support). We are taking the needs of each community group and division into account, and we are also working closely with the University in developing our ongoing response.
This is a difficult time for our many international students. Our international community is highly valued and we are doing everything we can to support our students.
Monash College will continue to carefully monitor this situation and will act with speed to protect the health and wellbeing of our students and staff. Updates will be provided as soon as they are available.
- The College stopped delivering face-to-face classes from close of business Wednesday 18 March.
- The College's Virtual Classroom environment began on Monday 30 March for all students. This is a temporary measure to help protect our students and to contribute to the worldwide response to the COVID-19 crisis.
- Physical campuses and offices are temporarily closed to staff and students until further notice.
- We had hoped to return to face-to-face teaching on Monday 20 April. However, given the current Federal and State Government advice, we have extended this date until restrictions on mass gatherings are removed. We don’t know when this will be but, as soon as we are able, we will resume teaching on campus.
- Virtual classes will be provided for all new and continuing students in Foundation Year Semester 2, Diploma Trimester 2 and English Terms 4 and 5.
