Approving U18 welfare arrangements for offshore students

Ms Lucy Jenkins1


A discussion around maintaining compliance with Standard 5 while approving new and updated U18 welfare arrangements during the period of bordure closures.

This discussion will include RMIT’s strategy for continuing U18 welfare approvals in 2020, including the introduction of a new welfare option available to students to ensure that offshore U18 students are able to commence their studies with a valid COE and without delay.

This session will cover:
– Managing U18 student welfare arrangements when the borders reopen.
– Keeping agents connected to the changing U18 landscape.
– Maintaining accurate details in PRISMS.
