COVID-19 response to support international students in NSW

The NSW international education sector is working hard to support the health, wellbeing, and academic success of international students.

A key priority is to ensure that international students have information about the support services that are available to them in Australia - locally and nationally.

International students, education providers and agents are encouraged to read the latest information form the Department of Education and Australia's regulators:

The Study in Australia website also lists COVID-19 response information from Australian education providers.

Whether you are in Australia or abroad, follow your provider's website and social media channels for updates and response information regarding COVID-19.
