First international students return to Australia

The Northern Territory Government and the Charles Darwin University (CDU) have welcomed 63 international students back to Australia, with a flight from Singapore landing in Darwin (NT) on Monday, 30 November 2020.

CDU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Simon Maddocks, welcomed the arrival of the new and continuing students from mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, Vietnam and Indonesia. The students are enrolled in a range of VET and Higher Education programs in Law, Nursing, IT, Education, Accounting and Engineering.

CDU has provided a comprehensive support program for students during their quarantine period including care packages, safety briefings, daily phone calls, virtual coffee catch ups and exercise classes, along with English language and employability workshops.

We offer every newly arrived student our warmest welcome – it’s so good to have you back with us!

All Australian states and territories are working directly with education providers to develop plans to welcome students back to their campuses and communities.
