Do I need to return home if I defer my studies during COVID-19?
You asked, we answered. You asked "Do I need to return home if I defer my studies during COVID-19?" and we gathered short videos from institutions, students and our IDP counsellors giving their answers and opinions.
Really, you don't need to return home, especially during covid-19. A lot of the countries don't have like to return home, so you have to ask your universities to see if they cancel your seewhy or not. If they let you defer with keeping the same school, then you don't have to. But if they cancel your seewhy, you will need to register a different course to have a different valid SEELE to continue staying in Australia.
If you choose to defy your studies due to covid, it is likely that you would have to return home. We would suggest that you speak to student services and also check in with the international office to get a better understanding of what your visa requirements are. In addition, we will also encourage you to call the Department of Home Affairs to clarify what are your rights to stay in Australia during this time?
University of Limerick
Word, yes, so if you're not a current active student in the university, if you haven't completed your program, then your visa is invalid. So you would need to return home and we can assist with the application process to renew your visa if you take back of your place for next year. But if you defer your place, you can't remain in Ireland if you're if you're not on student status.
Florida Institute of Technology
If you are a student on an F1 visa and you are currently in the United States, you may take all but one of your classes remotely. However, if you decide to stop your classes and defer to the next semester, you do need to leave the United States. If you have not entered the United States yet and you would like to defer to the next semester, you simply inform your university and they will change your intake to the next semester.
University of Ottawa
Should the University of Ottawa grant you a deferral to your studies, you will still have to comply with the conditions of your student visa, which requires that you be registered full time to a post-secondary institution. For more information, the best thing you can do is consult the Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada website for any up to date information on how to comply with your student visa.
