In response to government advice about the importance of physical distancing measures to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), VU has transitioned most of our units of study to an equivalent level, digitally-supported delivery model that students can access remotely.
Following the announcement of Stage 4 restrictions by Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, VU is working to identify and find solutions to the impacts and challenges caused by these new restrictions, particularly where essential on-campus study is involved.
VU will update students directly through their student email account regarding any impact to essential on-campus learning, practical placements or research activities. If you have any concerns regarding how the current restrictions affect your study, contact your course coordinator for further advice.
Face coverings on campus
If you do have special permission to attend a campus, you must wear a face covering when travelling to and from campus and while you are on campus. If you are not able to obtain a face mask yourself, you will be provided one by your teachers and lab assistants as necessary. Students who have a medical condition that allows them to attend class but prevents them from wearing a face mask will be required to show evidence provided to them by a medical practitioner.
Contract tracing app
You must also have the VU Safe app on your phone and use the app to log your attendance on campus. This app supports the COVID-19 tracing of people by them nominating their attendance on campus for face-to-face classes or for approved work or study. Using the app to mark your attendance on campus is mandatory.
