Student experiences during the COVID-19 Outbreak

CovidCampus Project:

Student experiences during the COVID-19 Outbreak: Understanding student perceptions of inclusion at the University of Melbourne

The COVID-19 outbreak poses significant issues for University students, with issues related to inclusivity being of central concern for students working from home.  The student experience in relationship to an infectious outbreak requiring quarantine is relatively unknown.  How do Universities support and reach out to students during this period and what is the student experience during an outbreak of the current nature?

CovidCampus is a student led project at the University of Melbourne.  Students enrolled in the Master of Public Health subject Community based participatory research led a photovoice project, where they documented their own experiences of the initial lockdowns of the University campus and physical distancing regulations.  Click here to view the exhibition online.  For more information about the CovidCampus project, please email Cathy Vaughan and Richard Chenhall.
