Study in Australia 202012 July 2020 by News Desk
Study in Australia has again been delayed, as students hoping to resume their study must wait to return.
Plans to bring back thousands of international students have been put on hold amidst a new outbreak of the virus.
Universities in NSW had developed a plan with NSW state government to fly into Sydney 250 international students every day for 100 days, beginning later this month, while Victorian universities had a proposal to bring in 7000 international students.
However, a spike in cases in Victoria and increased restrictions on international flights into Sydney has seen those plans delayed.

Federal minister for Education Dan Tehan said his government is continuing to work with universities to facilitate the return of students from overseas, however he warned there is no fixed timeline.
“Preconditions to this happening include the reopening of internal state and territory borders within Australia, as well as the return to on-campus learning for the benefit of domestic students and the international students who are already in Australia.
“Robust health, quarantine, border and provider protocols also need to be in place.”
