Dear Students, As you are no doubt aware, both the Australian and New Zealand Governments currently require anyone arriving in those countries to “self-isolate” for 14 days. ATMC is working on measures to support students through the 14 day period, and will supply you with full details in the immediate future. Until then, it is important to note: We are still accepting applications, issuing offers and CoEs and enrolling new and returning students at all campuses, for all programs – Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland. All course start dates currently remain valid. In accordance with Australian Government guidelines, all campuses remain open. As with most Universities in Australia, some of our programs are transitioning to online delivery – all of our support services will continue to be available to students under an online delivery model. This will not impact the quality of teaching, and under the Australian Qualifications Framework there is no difference between a qualification obtained online or face to face. Students are still welcome to come to both Australia and New Zealand (except those subject to country-based entry restrictions – see below). There is no blanket “ban” on international students coming to, or remaining in Australia or New Zealand. Australian and New Zealand citizens are subjected to the same 14 day self-isolation requirement. For your information, and the information of your students and their families, here are the guides explaining what “self-isolation” means: https://www.health.gov.au/resources/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-isolation-guidance https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/covid-19-novel-coronavirus/covid-19-novel-coronavirus-health-advice-general-public/covid-19-self-isolation We understand that this is a very unsettling time for your students, their families and no doubt your own teams. Rest assured that we are completely committed to supporting all of you, and look forward to welcoming your students through 2020 and beyond. Our latest information for students on the current situation can be found here: FAQ Page: https://atmc.edu.au/australia/coronavirus-faq General Update Page: https://atmc.edu.au/australia/coronavirus-covid-19-update Latest information on entry restrictions for Australia and New Zealand: https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/news-media/current-alerts/novel-coronavirus https://www.immigration.govt.nz/about-us/media-centre/news-notifications/coronavirus-update-inz-response Please don't hesitate to reach out to your ATMC representative if you require more information or need additional support.
