Canning College is looking forward to welcoming new students on to campus in early 2022 following an announcement from the Western Australian State Government.
After maintaining tight border controls that have successfully contained COVID-19 and limited its impact on the people of Western Australia, the State Government is preparing to start welcoming new international arrivals as part of a Safe Transition Plan.
The transition, which is based on expert health advice, will occur when WA reaches a double dose vaccination rate of 90% of the eligible population (12 years and over). This is expected to be achieved in late January/early February 2022.
Once an 80% vaccination rate is achieved, the WA State Government will announce the transition date.
International arrivals in Western Australian will be required to:
- be double-dose vaccinated
- return a negative PCR test 72 hours before departure
- undertake a test on arrival
During the pandemic, Canning College successfully developed, launched and delivered interactive online programs, which allowed international students to continue on their pathway to university from their own homes. We will continue to offer interactive online program delivery in 2022, until further notice.
The Safe Transition Plan is a significant step forward for Western Australia and we hope that students enrolled to start with us in first semester will be able to join us in Perth at some stage of their education. We anticipate that new students may not be in Perth for the start of Semester One 2022 and that they will begin their Canning College studies through online delivery. However, we encourage agents to assist students in taking the necessary steps to be able to join us in Perth where they can fully immerse themselves in the international student experience.
We understand that the processing of visas may be delayed in some countries and that some students may be required to spend more time studying online. Canning College will work with international education agents to ensure the best outcome for students enrolled in our programs.
Canning College is committed to providing international students with excellent pathway programs that take them into their chosen university. More than that, we will continue to assist in their personal development so they are ready for the transition into university life.
After almost two years of adjustment and caution around the world, we are delighted to be able to offer safety and stability here in Perth, Western Australia. Our State has the strongest economy in Australia, our city is clean, modern and conducive to a healthy lifestyle and our education system is among the best in the world – just three reasons for students to consider joining us at Canning College.
