Updated Information – Student Vaccination Requirements

Box Hill Institute prioritises the health and safety of students and employees on our campuses.

For our return to campus, vaccination is our best protection to keep our people safe and protect the community against the spread of COVID-19. 

Due to an update in policy from the Department of Education, Box Hill Institute has made the decision to align the student vaccination requirements on campus with the current requirements for employees.

Taking a risk based approach, BHI have implemented the aligned timeline for students and employees to provide opportunities to support our students to complete assessments in 2021 while still prioritising the safety of our students and teachers. 

This means that partially vaccinated students can now attend on campus up until the 26th November 2021. From the 26th November 2021 all students and employees on campus will be required to be fully vaccinated. 

Key Dates

·         4th November – 25th November 2021: students and employees must be at least partially vaccinated to attend on campus

·         From 26th November 2021 onwards: students and employees must be fully vaccinated to attend on campus

The vaccination requirements do not include students who are attending on campus to complete secondary school subjects or those that have a medical exemption.

Teachers on campus will be required to check your vaccination status (and QR codes) at the beginning of each class. Students who are not vaccinated will not be able to attend on campus. Box Hill Institute is working to confirm next steps for these students and will communicate as soon as possible.
