Hawthorn-Melbourne continues to follow the advice provided by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Australian Government Department of Health in relation to COVID-19. The safety and well being of our students and staff is our main priority. 

Common symptoms of Covid-19 are fever, flu-like symptoms (coughing, sore throat and fatique) and shortness of breath. Any student who is feeling sick with the above symptoms should:

  • stay at home
  • seek medical advice by calling the dedicated Covid-19 Hotline on 1800 675 398.
  • let us know if you are instructed by a doctor to self-quarantine as a preventative measure, so we can support you.


Information for current students

Hawthorn-Melbourne has been monitoring the advice from the Australian Government Department of Health in relation to COVID-19. Since the outbreak, the health and well-being of our students and staff has been our main priority.

With this as our focus, Hawthorn-Melbourne has temporarily discontinued traditional face-to-face teaching. All classes will be delivered online until further notice. 

Online English courses are a chance for us all to experience new ways of teaching and learning. Our students and staff are the most important people at Hawthorn-Melbourne, and we look forward to exploring this with you.
