La Trobe acknowledges the significant disruption caused by COVID-19. Underloading (which means studying less than a full-time course load) is permitted for international Students during Semester 2, 2020.
You should wherever possible, try to complete your studies by your CoE end date. This may involve catching up by taking Summer or Winter subjects. If your study plan indicates you will need more time to complete your studies, you will need to extend your CoE, apply for a visa extension, and take out additional overseas student’s health insurance, which involve additional costs.
We want to do everything we can to support you during this uncertain time. Our Student FAQs for COVID-19 page is updated frequently so you can stay informed.
If you have any questions in relation to your student visa, study load, or work rights, contact International Student Services for advice, by calling on (03) 9479 1199 (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday).
