As a member of the Government’s Global Reputation Taskforce, IHEA And other sector leaders regularly meet with the Education Minister and other Government stakeholders to steer and shape Australia’s response to these very serious developments.
IHEA welcomes the Government’s efforts to support overseas students who are unable to travel to Australia to attend classes, as well as allowing greater flexibility for higher education providers to facilitate remote learning modes for students who will be unable to make the start of class this year.
