“Our international students are an important part of Swinburne and they have been sorely missed since the beginning of the pandemic. We look forward to having them back on our campuses and we are sure they are looking to a 2022 that is rich with face-to-face learning, enjoyment of Swinburne’s spaces and work integrated learning opportunities, including placements, internships and industry projects.

“Swinburne will continue to offer a suite of support measures to international students as they return, and to those who remain in their home countries until such time as they can return to Australia,” Professor Quester said.
