COVID-19 in Semester 2

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an impact in Australia and around the world, and we know it’s led to new and different challenges for our students. Whether you’re here in Australia or overseas, please remember we have supports to help you succeed in your studies.

Having financial difficulties? Our Matthew Flinders Scholarship is open to international and domestic students, and another round of fundraising is planned to help as many students as possible. If you are an international student, the state government’s International Student Support Program (ISSP) has been reactivated – you can find out about the ISSP here.

If disruption is affecting your studies or your sense of wellbeing, visit our student support and services directory where you’ll find a range of helpful resources, ranging from academic support to counselling services, to activities to keep you connected – take a look, it may make a difference!

Speaking of being connected, we’ve started resuming face-to-face tutorials, workshops and other activities as space permits; lectures, however, are being delivered online. Chances are you’ll have a combination of online and in person learning and your arrangements may be different to your friends’, so make sure you check your Flinders Learning Online (FLO) topic site to keep up to date. Your topic coordinator will also be able to provide some insight into how your learning will look.

Our campuses are open and facilities such as the library and food outlets are up and running. Where QR codes are available please check in, maintain physical distance and practice good hand hygiene. SA Health recommends face masks be worn on campus so remember to bring yours.

As the Flinders University community has shown over the last 18 months, we are a flexible and adaptive lot – and we’re committed to your success, regardless of how you study.

Because the COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving we’ll keep you updated on the latest.  Professor Deborah West, Interim Deputy Vice Chancellor (Students) will advise if there are any changes to restrictions, so check your student email regularly.

For information about the current restrictions in South Australia, please visit the SA Government COVID-19 website and our student COVID-19 webpage for latest information at Flinders.
