Acting Minister Tudge has announced that the Government will undertake further engagement with the international education sector who already provide some financial support for international students facing hardship.
Key Facts From His Media Release on 5 April 2020:
- International students working in supermarkets will have their working hours return to the maximum 40 hours a fortnight on 1 May 2020 as more Australians are being recruited into these roles
- International students working in aged care and as nurses continue to have their hours extended to support these critical sectors
- The Government will also be flexible in cases where Coronavirus has prevented international students meeting their visa conditions (such as not being able attend classes)
International students in their first 12 months are expected to support themselves given their visa application commitment that they had sufficient funds to support their stay in Australia.
