Government Approves Pilot Trial to bring back International Students

Flinders University has confirmed that the Federal Government has approved to bring 300 international students into Adelaide.  Under the new pilot scheme aiming to reboot international education, the approval allows 300 continuing students to come back to Adelaide.

It is anticipated that the majority of the students will be flying in from Singapore and their arrival is expected to happen in November.

A further 70 students are expected in Darwin in the next month under a similar arrangement into Charles Darwin University.

Under the second pilot, which has the approval of the Australian and Northern Territory governments, will see up to 70 international students arrive in Darwin from Singapore in late October in time for the next CDU intake on 9 November.

The group will be the first international students to enter Australia since the introduction of hard border restrictions in March due to COVID-19.

Upon arrival, students will be escorted immediately to the Northern Territory Government facility at Howard Springs for 14 days of quarantine.

CDU Deputy Vice-Chancellor Global Strategy and Advancement, Andrew Everett said his team had been working tirelessly over the past six months to secure the return of the students and wanted to reassure the Darwin community that all health and safety measures will be strictly maintained as directed by the Chief Health Officer of the NT.

Students are likely to come from a range of countries including China and Southeast Asia. They will travel from Singapore to Darwin at their own expense.

    Will the 300 IS be new students or continuing students who had been studying in Australia and left Australia for some reasons?
