COVID-19 updates and resources for Melbourne students

We understand that these ongoing changes are difficult to manage, however, the College will continue to align with all National and State Government directives in order to support the health and safety of the community. As we continue to adapt and plan together, we ask that all communication/interaction with staff remains respectful and in line with the Student Code of Conduct.

We ask that all students please check their student eWeb emails and student portal for all COVID-19 important updates before contacting the College.

Thank you for your adaptability and resilience during this time!

Latest updates

In order to protect the safety of our students, staff and wider communities whilst providing the best possible opportunity for student progression, Endeavour has adjusted subject delivery plans for the January 2022 teaching period to minimise on-campus activity. As such, the Melbourne Campus is operating at reduced campus activity. Full details about what this means for students can be found in the Student Portal and have been communicated via student email.

Based on the recent Victorian Government directive and under the Victorian Specified Facilities Direction which applies to certain categories of health providers and AHPRA registered disciplines, Endeavour College will require all students and staff who are participating in Chinese medicine clinical placements at the Melbourne Endeavour Wellness Clinic to be fully vaccinated.

This means all current Chinese medicine students will be required to provide proof of vaccination* or proof of medical exemption in order to attend clinical classes at the Melbourne Endeavour Wellness Clinic.

As of 6 January, no other modality is affected by the current State Government directive and will be able to participate in clinic regardless of vaccination status.

In order to meet our WHS obligations and duty of care to our community, everyone who enters any Endeavour campus or clinic must check-in using the relevant system, such as QR codes. Mask wearing is currently also required when on campus. Our decision to implement these strategies are in line with national and state health advice to minimise the impact of COVID-19 on our campuses so that we can successfully support students with their course progression and continue to remain open.

We ask that all students be respectful and adhere to the WHS, health and safety protocols in order to support a COVID-free campus environment.

College COVID-19 protocols:

  • Students who are sick with cold and flu symptoms must NOT attend the college and can connect with their lecturer directly to discuss options.
  • State government QR code/check-in system
  • Physical distancing of 1.5 metres where practical
  • Adhering to maximum capacities as per state legislation (No capacity limits for the Melbourne Campus)
  • Adhering to government advice about the wearing of face masks (Face masks are currently required at the Melbourne Campus)
  • Hand hygiene promotion including handwashing instructions located in key areas and availability of hand sanitiser
  • Daily cleaning/disinfectant requirement for all high touch areas
  • Perspex sneeze guards used in reception areas
  • Screening questions will be asked in clinic before the commencement of an appointment

*Vaccination status and any information contained on an Immunisation Certificate is considered sensitive health information and will be treated as such for the purposes of the Privacy Act. Any person's vaccination status will not be discussed broadly and will be limited to a 'needs know basis' in order to comply with the current health order.
