Deakin University is set to welcome all international students, including a large number from India. This comes after Australian PM Scott Morrison announced that all fully-vaccinated visa holders could return to Australia without any travel exemptions.
The Victorian government has confirmed that international students landing in Melbourne do not have to quarantine provided they meet vaccination requirements to the Commonwealth.
Vice-Chancellor of Deakin University, Professor Iain Martin, said that they were delighted to hear the announcement of welcoming back international students from December 1, 2021.
The university has taken other measures to ensure that all campuses are safe and that these measures are in alignment with the Victorian government’s protocols.
Deputy Vice President (Global) and CEO (South Asia), Ravneet Pawha, said that since the onset of the pandemic in 2020, the university has been actively engaging with its international cohort by offering financial, study and community support particularly to those impacted by border closures.
This was much-awaited news for all students including current and potential, as well as partners, he added.
With a comprehensive student services program and staff based at the South Asia office at New Delhi, Indian students’ transition to studying at Deakin would be easier, Pawha mentioned. He further said that the university is looking forward to welcoming international students on-campus.
Deakin University is a public university located in Victoria, Australia. In 2021, the university was ranked among the top 1% of the universities in the world.
