A CHARTER flight of 350 students from overseas will fly into Canberra Airport in July as part of an ACT government-approved pilot to boost the international education sector.
The joint initiative between the University of Canberra (UC) and ANU will see students quarantined in hotels for a fortnight before returning to class for semester two.
The students in the trial will all be returning students who have previously studied in Canberra, but had their return delayed due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. Students considered for the pilot will be older students, for example those studying research or postgraduate courses, honours students and those in the final year of their undergraduate degree.
Scott Morrison says of the war against COVID-19: “On some days the virus wins. On other days we beat it.” This week, the virus was counting its victories most days, writes political columnist MICHELLE GRATTAN.
