Some Australian Universities Provide fee relaxation for international Students
Some of the Australian Universities are offering fee relaxation for International students. These relaxations are for the international students who got stuck there because of the closing of borders and travel restrictions. Mostly relaxations are for those students who live and study in remote areas.
The University of Adelaide and its plans
Offshore students are offered relaxation in their tuition fees by some of the universities. The University of Adelaide is one of the lists of those universities and offers 20% relaxation in tuition fees. This relaxation will be valid till the border restrictions are applied. And no more rebate will be offered to international students as they will be no more offshore after ending the travel restrictions.
CISA remarks about fee relaxation
CISA is the Council of International Student Australia asking remaining universities to follow the same rule as it is already appreciating this step of Australian universities. CISA is actually a national peak students representation organisation which works for International students. Especially for the students who work for Undergraduate programs, postgraduate programs, foundation programs, private colleges and TAFE and ELICOS programs. CISA wants other universities to follow the strategy to please international students because they are not much satisfied with the online learning system. After the outbreak of pandemic international students found it difficult to pay 40,000 AUD as tuition fees per year.
In this way, the university is trying to show its commitment towards its students by providing the quality experience of education. This step is appreciated a lot and it is expected that more and more universities try to facilitate international students. The international students which are suffering from travel restrictions after the outbreak of a pandemic.
In fact, CISA is expecting from institutes to offer relief plans regarding late payment fees and help international students in financial stress. They should make some strategies to encourage international students to complete their education from Australia. As many of the students still want to come back to Australia and complete their studies from Australia and are waiting for some potential steps by institutions.
Other fee relaxation options
Bond University is also trying to facilitate international students besides the above-mentioned institute. International students awarding 10% tuition fee relaxation by Bond University.

International students who are doing undergraduates and postgraduates courses and doing full-time studies, Griffith University is offering 20% relaxation.
The University Of Queensland is offering 12.5% tuition fees relaxation to international students.
