Department of Education: Information for university students affected by 2019-2020 Australian bushfires

The destruction and disruption caused by the 2019-2020 Australian bushfires across the country is immense and widespread. As a result, a number of universities have initiated support measures for students affected by the bushfires. Some universities are providing specific advice to students and applicants who require assistance in re-enrolling, completing their applications or finalising their preferences and offers. Some Universities are also offering additional financial assistance to students affected by the bushfires. See the list below for more details. If your university or education provider is not listed below you may still wish to contact your university directly if you have any bushfire related questions or issues.
