CAAW students and the holiday period

Guidance for schools with international students staying over summer holidaysWe've published frequently asked questions (FAQs) for CRICOS schools with international students remaining in Australia over the December–January holiday period. The FAQs help schools understand and manage their general responsibilities, and consider additional responsibilities brought about by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Where a CRICOS school has students on a Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare (CAAW) letter, it has firm responsibilities to those students. These responsibilities do not change during periods of disruption or uncertainty.

The FAQs provide information and guidance to help schools develop plans in relation to:

  • accommodation
  • support and general welfare
  • travel
  • homestay
  • COVID-safe practices
