Yes, the program has been carefully considered to provide you with a well-rounded experience of Adelaide as a destination for international students. We will allow for some free time in the program but due to the investment of time and budget that has gone into the program, it is expected that you attend all aspects of the program from 14-22 March 2024.

I don’t have an agreement with all the institutions in Adelaide, am I still eligible to visit their campus?

Yes. All delegates will have the opportunity to visit the three state universities (Flinders University, University of South Australia, and The University of Adelaide), TAFE SA, SA Government Schools, and selected other partners during the famil.

Are there any COVID–19 requirements to enter Australia?

You will still need to check that you meet the requirements of your airline, your home country, and any countries you transit through.

What happens if I contract COVID or get sick during the famil?

If you test positive during the famil, you will need to follow the advice from SA Health. There is no mandatory quarantine or isolation required if you test positive for COVID-19.To protect the health of others, we will request for you to avoid contact with the group until your acute symptoms have cleared. The StudyAdelaide team will be there to assist you and make your stay as comfortable as possible.

If you wish to visit other cities post famil, please commence discussions with us as early as possible to avoid costly changes to flight itineraries. Please also note that visiting other cities post famil will mean that you forfeit your StudyAdelaide funded return flight, and the replacement return flight will be at your own expense.

Your visa support letter from StudyAdelaide will only cover the dates of travel that you will be in Adelaide.
