Universities understand that online study is a new thing and that international students will take time to adjust. For this reason, they are allowing flexibility on the amount of workload students are expected to take on. For instance, students are allowed to study one or two subjects as opposed to a full-time workload as is usually the case for students studying on campus.
Australian Universities have been doing online learning for a long time and their cloud (online) systems are highly advanced. In the recent past due to COVID-19, international students in and outside Australia have had to study online. This is due to the new rules on social distancing and travel restrictions. As long as you set yourself up with the necessary equipment, e.g. a computer, and reliable internet, it is convenient.
If you choose not to study online while in your home country, you will not be penalized.
Are there discount/scholarships for online classes?
Some institutions are offering discounts/scholarships on tuition fees when international students accept to study online. However, not all institutions are offering discounts. Your student counselor will be able to inform you of the universities offering discounts.
On our upcoming events our partners will expound on how their institutions are doing online studies.
