In a continuation of the support provided to students commencing their studies in a face-to-face virtual learning environment, Charles Sturt University Study Centres is allowing students starting offshore in November to take a reduced course load.
Students will now also be eligible to receive an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCOE) with the option to reduce their course load. Students will be required to pay the full session tuition fees upfront as stated on their offer letter, in order to receive an eCOE, however, will have the flexibility to study between one to four subjects this November.
Receiving an eCOE allows students to apply for an Australian student visa, meaning every subject completed online, whilst with a valid student visa, will count toward their application for a Graduate Temporary visa when they complete their course.
If your students intend on taking a reduced course load, they must complete their degree in the time allocated on their student visa. For the latest information and recent announcements by the Australian government regarding student visas and post study work rights refer to immi.homeaffairs.gov.au.
