Amendment - 6 May 2021
Allowances for supporting documentation:
We as a University recognise that our students continue to be impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In light of this, if you are unable to access a health practitioner to obtain supporting documentation in a timely manner, the University will accept alternative forms of supporting documentation, e.g. personal statements.
It is important that international students understand their obligations and restrictions when applying for program leave.
Students can only apply for program leave after having effective enrolment in at least one course in the program at The Australian National University for which they are seeking program leave. Applications for leave are submitted by the last day to enrol for an academic session and, where a student is already enroled for the academic session, the application is submitted no later than the census date of the session concerned.
Students on leave retain full access to ANU IT services including ANU email, ISIS, Alliance and Library.
Failure to re-enrol after the period of approved program leave will result in you being discontinued from your program. If this happens and you wish to re-enrol at ANU at a later date, you will need to re-apply for admission.
The Australian Government has announced a range of visa measures to support students impacted by COVID-19. For further information, please refer to the 'Visa Information' section of the COVID-19 Advice webpage.
