Information for Students

Arrangements for Students Term 3 2022

 

If you were diagnosed with a Rapid Antigen Test, please register your case through Service NSW. You must then follow the instruction on how to manage COVID-19 safely from home are provided by NSW Health. These currently include a requirement to isolate.

If you were on campus during your infectious period, (2 days before onset of symptoms or positive test) we would like to know about it. Please let us know using this form. We use this information to alert our community members to the sites of potential exposure on campus.

If you will miss class, please contact your course convenor who can be found in the course outline or in your Moodle Classroom. They may be able to help you make alternative arrangements while you isolate.

If you are going to miss any assessment you will need to submit a special consideration application.

You may be eligible for financial assistance from the government and can find out here.

Hang in there and we will do everything we can to support you. If you need any extra personal support please contract a Student Support Advisor.

Household and close contacts do not need to self-isolate if you do not have any symptoms, but must follow NSW Health household and close contact guidelines for 7 days from the last time someone in your household tested positive to COVID-19, or as otherwise directed by NSW Health if you are a close contact.

If you will miss class, please contact your course convenor who can be found in the course outline or in your Moodle Classroom. They may be able to help you make alternative arrangements while you isolate.

If you are going to miss any assessment you will need to submit a special consideration application.

You may be eligible for financial assistance from the government and can find out here.

Hang in there and we will do everything we can to support you. If you need any extra personal support please contract a Student Support Advisor.

Estate Management (EM) is assessing all buildings across the University’s campuses to identify the best method or combinations of methods to improve the indoor air quality and volume of outside air flowing into indoor spaces to help reduce the risk that virus particles may be circulating.

In the short term:

  1. For buildings or spaces with operable windows e.g., Chancellery – occupants will be advised to open windows when they are present. Note that this will likely impact the internal comfort conditions in the building. 
  2. For buildings with central air conditioning e.g., Mathews Building – outside air intakes will be opened further to increase the volume of outside air. This may lead to changes in the internal comfort conditions of these spaces, but as normal occupancy is achieved over time, the systems will be adjusted to improve the working conditions. 
  3. For older buildings without central air conditioning or spaces without access to operable windows – where physical distancing cannot be achieved, EM will install mobile HEPA filter units each capable of servicing a room of up to 100m2.

In the longer term, and where possible:

  1. Implement fresh air purge events to spaces with high occupancy levels prior to and following normal operating hours.
  2. EM are investigating the roll-out of CO2 monitors across campus to spaces with high occupancy levels. Implementation will be subject to availability and lead time for installation.
  3. EM will look to improve HVAC air filtration performance to the highest degree permissible without significantly impacting system air flow.
  4. Investigate the installation and effectiveness of new supplementary air treatment technologies such as San-Air purifiers and Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI).

While these initiatives can reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, it is not possible for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems alone to eliminate the risk. The most beneficial measure to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission in indoor spaces is following Public Health recommendations i.e wearing masks, physical distancing, reduced occupancy levels, reduced activity levels, washing hands, wiping surfaces clean and following the Public Health Orders.

While masks are not mandatory in most settings, we strongly encourage you to wear masks indoors, particularly in classrooms and where physical distancing cannot be maintained.

In line with NSW Health guidance regarding high-risk situations, the University has identified a set of high-risk activities where Safety Risk Assessments have deemed that masks should continue to be worn. These are situations where distancing cannot be maintained for extended periods and include some labs, pracs, field trips and teaching environments. Faculties will determine and communicate the specific activities and classes where masks will be required. 

Please note that for Medicine & Health classes, it is mandatory that all staff and students wear a mask.

At UNSW we believe in the important role of on-campus teaching and learning, and the many advantages of our community coming together. We plan to offer as many face-to-face classes as possible in Term 3 2022, while also offering online classes for our students who cannot yet join us on campus.

You can find all current course offerings in the UNSW Class Timetable.

The Class Timetable will be updated if a course is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. If you are registered for that class you will be notified automatically.

If the current COVID-19 situation is impacting your studies and your ability to complete any assessments, you can apply for Special Consideration or you may be eligible for Fee Remission.

If you have other concerns and wish to talk to someone, you can book an appointment with one of our helpful Student Support Advisors.

Yes – you will be asked for the details of your Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) if you attend a doctor, medical centre or hospital.

Go here for more information on OSHC.

UNSW’s preferred OSHC provider is Medibank.

No. The COVID-19 vaccination is free for all Australian residents, including international students currently in Australia. If you receive your vaccination at the UNSW Health Service and you have health insurance with Medibank there will be no charge. If you don't have OSHC with Medibank you can still get a free vaccination but you will need to go to your nearest GP respiratory clinic for your vaccine. You can find out where this is here.  Alternatively, please contact your health insurance provider for more information.

Yes. Commencing international students can start their UNSW studies online. In most cases you will find your core compulsory courses are offered online and you will have a choice of elective options. The 2022 class timetable is available. However, there are some programs with components that cannot currently be completed remotely. This may be due to the need for specialist equipment or in some cases because of the requirements of external accrediting organisations. If you are studying one of the programs listed below and you are not able to study onshore, your graduation may be delayed. If you would like further information about how your studies may be impacted, contact the Nucleus: Student Hub

When it is time you to travel to Sydney, our Return of International Students page is here to help. We support you with pre-departure, Sydney entry requirements, accommodation, airport transport and warmly welcome you to UNSW.

 

If you participate by remote means and need to access online teaching material, you can visit the IT website  or the transitioning to online learning website for more information on what programs to use and how to get set up for remote study. The IT website also hosts tips on how to set yourself up for online success.

If you do not have the technology needed to complete your classes online please contact the UNSW student and staff hotline +61 2 9385 8500.

  • You must participate in your class at the specified time (Australian Eastern Standard Time – AEST) unless your Course Authority has advised that a class is not compulsory or has been recorded.  

  • Special Consideration will not be awarded on the grounds that you are in different time zone. 

Recognition of online studies by the Chinese Government

Chinese Government officials have confirmed that UNSW online courses will be recognised by the Chinese Service Center for Scholarly Exchange (CSCSE) if a student's study plan has been disrupted by COVID-19 and associated travel restrictions.

Recognition of online studies by the Indian Government

The Indian Ministry of Human Resources Development is yet to make a final decision on recognition of online studies via foreign higher education providers. The Australian Government is continuing to make representations to their Indian counterparts and the UNSW India Centre is similarly making representations to relevant agencies in New Delhi.

Affected students may defer or take program leave until Term 1 2023 depending on the availability of relevant programs and subjects. 

You may choose to defer the start of your study until the next available intake. For many programs this will be Term 1 2023. 

Your COE will be cancelled and you will need to accept your new offer. Once you accept your new offer a new COE will be issued. 

You need both a valid COE and visa to enter Australia. Your student visa should stay in place.

Please check the Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO) system for your visa end date, updated details and conditions.

Program leave is for continuing students.  

Program leave will be granted as compassionate and compelling so there should be no impact on your student visa. Your current Confirmation of Enrolment (COE) will be cancelled but a new one will be issued straight away. You can check your visa status through Visa Entitlement Verification Online (VEVO).  

We recommend that you also notify the Department of Home Affairs.

If you have questions about program leave and your COE and visa, please emailinternational.student@unsw.edu.au

If you commence or continue your studies offshore, you need a valid Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE).

You should use your CoE to apply for a student visa as soon as you are able. Maintaining a valid student visa will enable you to travel and resume your studies on campus as soon as the current travel restrictions to Australia are lifted.

Some student visa requirements have changed for those impacted by COVID-19. Information on changes can be found on the Australian Home Affairs website.

 

In response to COVID-19, UNSW has worked to develop appropriate processes and support for Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Placements to be conducted remotely in a work at home capacity or offshore in certain locations.

In some circumstance, however, it may not currently be possible for students located offshore to complete their WIL placements. This may be due to the need for appropriate clinical placements, adequate insurance cover or in some cases because an external accrediting organisation requires that the placement takes place in Australia. If you are studying, or intend to study, one of the programs listed below that contain a compulsory WIL placement then your progression or graduation may be delayed if are required to complete you WIL placement in Australia at a later date.

For more information about how the WIL is being managed during COVID-19 please contact wil@unsw.edu.au

Fully vaccinated eligible visa holders can now travel to Australia without needing to apply for a travel exemption. This includes international students who hold Student (Subclass 500) and Temporary Graduate (Subclass 485) visas.

To enter Australia, returning international students will need to:

  • hold a valid student visa and Confirmation of Enrolment
  • have more than 6 months validity on your passport
  • have received a full dose of a COVID-19 vaccine approved or recognised by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA)
  • present evidence that you have received a TGA-approved vaccine
  • All passengers arriving by air into Australia should ​​complete the Digital Passenger Declaration.

Full details of eligibility and travel requirements can be found here.

Please ensure you are monitoring the Australian Government website for the latest updates on travel and visa restrictions before you arrange your travel.

 

Visit the UNSW Student Life Hub to stay connected and for further information on where to go for support and assistance. You can also contact our Student Support Advisors.

If you are a student and your health, the need to get tested for COVID-19, or self-isolation impacts your studies and assessments you may be eligible to apply for Special Consideration. You should discuss options with your teacher or supervisor in the first instance. If you are feeling worried about your health or study you can also contact the Nucleus: Student Hub who can find you the support you need.

Arrangements for Higher Degree Research Candidates

  • If you are a new candidate you may be able to defer your UNSW admission and scholarship (if applicable) offer to the next term. Please refer to the HDR calendar for term start dates and contact the Admissions & Scholarships Team at international.grs@unsw.edu.au or domestic.grs@unsw.edu.au

If you are unable to conduct your research due to the current restrictions and travel bans, you should discuss the following with your supervisor: 

  • Is there any work that can continue while these restrictions are in place?  
  • Can the planned work be modified? 
  • Can the planned work be delayed? 
  • Is it possible to focus on writing? 

If you are unable to continue or modify your work, you should consider taking program leave. Alternatively, if you can continue at a reduced capacity, part-time enrolment could be an option. Please see below for details on how to apply. 

Make sure that you document any ways that COVID-19 has impacted your progress, as this can be taken into account at a later stage when needed.  

If you wish to apply for Program Leave you can do so via GRIS. Further information on Term dates including deadlines for applying for program leave is on the HDR Academic Calendar page.  

Please be aware that your scholarship will be suspended while you’re on leave and you should not be working on your research during that time. If you have any questions about program leave, please contact the Candidature Management Officer for your Faculty. 

If you are a domestic research candidate, you can apply for a change to part-time enrolment using GRIS.

Student Visa Holders must be enrolled full-time, however, under exceptional circumstances an international candidate may be given approval to change to part-time attendance. Information on how to apply can be found on the HDR Hub.

Please note that if you are a scholarship holder, a change to part-time enrolment will have an impact on your stipend. More information can be found on the HDR Hub.

If you are currently residing outside of Australia, and wish to conduct fieldwork outside of Australia, you will need to request approval to work away from campus. Further information is here.

You should complete the fieldwork risk assessment form and email it to travelrisk@unsw.edu.au for the risk team to consider your request.

Information for Future Students

Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, UNSW remains operational and dedicated to providing a world-class education for all our students.

At UNSW we believe in the important role of on-campus teaching and learning, and the many advantages of our community coming together.

We plan to offer as many face-to-face classes as possible in Term 3 2022, while also offering online classes for our students who cannot yet join us on campus.
