My study provider closes down from early December to late January. I won't be meeting the Centrelink activity requirement during this time. Does that mean I need to drop DS down to one day a week to avoid full fees?

Are you studying again next year??
How would they know if you don’t advise them??
I would just keep sending him as usual, and use the time to catch up on study or research jobs etc for after you’re done.

Pretty sure it keeps going. It’s not unusual for their to be breaks study but ccs keeps going.

I would check with CL but it normally keeps going for short breaks in work, eg long service leave.

CCB used to continue but there’s nothing in the CCS info about breaks. I’ll try on Monday. I suspect it will be dropped to one day a week.

Section 29 extends the recognised activity of an approved course of education or study, to also include scheduled semester or vacation breaks during the training course. Where the rule applies, the individual is taken to be engaged in the same number of hours of that course normally scheduled during a period of the same length. However, the individual is not taken to be engaging in recognised activity under this rule where the break occurs at the start (is enrolled but has not actually commenced) or end (has completed but has not yet been conferred with the relevant award) of a course or arises because the individual defers starting or continuing such a course.

Under the "Approved course of education or study" activity it says "Includes term/semester breaks but excludes the term/semester break following completion of the course." on this page: https://guides.dss.g...-guide/3/5/2/10
