Griffith College COVIDsafe Plan

Students_waiting

Griffith College is taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously and our primary focus is the health and well-being of our students and staff.

The Australian Government’s policy response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to see closed Australian borders. Given this, and until there is a change to this policy, students who are not currently in Australia should be prepared to continue or start their studies at Griffith College via our digital campus. Students already in Australia who are also restricted by closed or conditioned State borders, should also be prepared to study via our digital campus, and where necessary abide by relevant quarantine guidelines before coming on to the College campus.

Griffith College has a comprehensive COVID-safe Plan which allows students and staff who are able to attend the campus for some classes and on-campus activities. We would ask that you abide by physical distancing principles whilst on campus, refrain from coming on campus if feeling unwell and use the hand sanitiser provided.. That plan is updated regularly as University and government authorities make changes to COVID-19 policy settings.

We will keep students and staff informed as updates are provided, and recommend all in the college community stay in touch via the digital campus.

COVID-19 FAQs

How is the College keeping students and staff safe as we manage a return to campus?

Griffith College is following the advice of authorities to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students and staff.

The health and wellbeing of our students and staff is of paramount importance and we will continue to follow and apply appropriate physical distancing measures.

Physical distancing will require the College to minimise the number of students in a teaching room, hence the majority of our courses and classes will continue to be delivered online. When activity increases on campus, so too will cleaning of small teaching rooms, computer labs, and student and staff social areas.

We will also continue to offer all of our College Support services remotely, so if you need to make an appointment you can do so by setting up an appointment either face to face or online here.
