An update for Melbourne students

Updated Tuesday 25 August, 11.13am

The College has continued to follow the evolving COVID-19 situation in Victoria and align to the current directive of Stage 4 restrictions in Melbourne and Stage 3 restrictions in regional Victoria.

With the government prediction of when the easing of restrictions will likely take place, it has been decided that the Melbourne campus will remain closed for the remainder of 2020. We acknowledge that this will be disappointing for many students as this will impact the remainder of on-campus planned studies in 2020. In all cases where reasonable adjustments are able to be accommodated, we remain committed to adapting subjects to the online and live streaming environment to support continued studies.

This decision has not been made lightly and considerations were given to the below. We are as disappointed as you are not to have you back on campus in 2020.

  • Under the current Stage 4 restrictions the College is classified as a non-essential business and is prevented from onsite operations until the restrictions are eased.
  • The continued presenting case numbers with state government predicts the easing of restrictions in late September to December (subject to change with no clear directive of timelines which are reliant on case numbers and the slowing of the spread of COVID-19).
  • State government directive and recommendations are in place for education providers to support remote learning, collaborative projects and online study.
  • We acknowledge that these are very stressful and anxious times as the timelines change every six weeks, however your wellbeing is important to us and we would like to provide clear directions on the remainder of your studies for 2020 and the planning in place for 2021.
  • Our commitment to the health, safety and wellbeing of all students, staff, clients and the community remains steadfast as state directive restrictions remain in place.

Discipline specific updates

  • All students have been sent discipline and subject specific details in a separate communication. Please refer to the individual emails sent to your current email address on file.

  • To facilitate your progression, pre-requisites will be considered on a case by case basis without compromising the student or client safety. A special consideration application (SCA) can be raised via the student portal.
  • For all enrolled students, the College will facilitate the enrolment into 2021 Summer School offerings, S1|21 timetables and Clinic Blocks. This will ensure you secure a place as a priority in a 2021 timetable.
  • If you or your family are impacted by the current situation and are seeking professional support, we recommend that you reach out to the SAP (Student Assistance Program) on 1800 336 207 (24/7), confidential counselling for study related or personal problems hotline exclusively for Endeavour students, free for a series of sessions.

An update for our Brisbane and Gold Coast students

Updated: Friday 7 August 2020

An update for our Brisbane and Gold Coast students regarding the recent announcements from the State Government directive, and updated Border Restrictions Direction that will be effective from Saturday 8 of August (1am) between QLD and NSW. The College will continue to follow State Government directive to support the management of COVID-19, and to ensure our students, staff clients, and the wider community, remain safe and well.

The College is currently working on solutions for students that reside in a postcode outside of the border residents’ zones. A member of the Student Support and academic team will be in contact shortly to support your enrolment at this time.

If you have alternative arrangements to cross the border, so you can continue with your studies, please let us know so that we can note this on file. If you still require support, you can connect with a Student Services team member to discuss your options: 1300 462 887 (ext.2).

New FAQs page for Melbourne students

Updated: Monday 13 July 2020

Dear Melbourne students,

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation in Melbourne, including reimposed lockdowns and restrictions, we have created a new Melbourne FAQs page to provide you with the latest updates and information.

We will continue to update this page over the coming weeks as new information becomes available.

You can find the Melbourne FAQs page here.

Clinic Block Model

Updated 5 May 2020 at 4.28PM (AEST)

Based on feedback from our students who sought more consistency with their clinic subjects, in order to manage their studies alongside their work, life and family commitments, we have introduced a new Clinic Block Model to replace the old semester model.

With a consistently changing clinic schedule from semester to semester, we understood the challenges it posed to many of you. In addition, due to the long semester breaks in clinic, we found it difficult to promote a continuity of care for our clients, and ultimately retain our clients. Now that the clinic will be open for 48 weeks of the year, it will allow both students and clients to have more consistency and give students more opportunity to study and treat outside of a traditional semester. You will be able to start a Clinic Block during a semester break – this will not only help with study workloads, but also with the advancement of your degree.

We recognise that many of you are supporting their families through working and parenting, and that adding study on top of these existing commitments was challenging with the old clinic model. The new Clinic Block Model allows you to achieve your goals and pursue a passion in natural health by offering more flexibility to juggle commitments across multiple blocks, based on your availability throughout the year.

The Clinic Block Model aims to:

  • Provide a high standard student clinical education
  • Build students’ experience in the clinical setting
  • Build strong and repeated client experience
  • Provide flexibility for students
  • Extend opening hours for increased client engagement
