How we are helping students affected by the COVID-19

Pearson digital resources are available for university students to purchase and access from overseas countries, including China.

At Pearson, we are saddened to see the effect the COVID-19 is having around the world, as well as on Australian universities and students planning to study here in 2020.

We are working to support learners that may have been impacted by travel restrictions and closures in the following ways:

  • For students outside Australia, we are doing our best to enable students to purchase, access and use our digital learning resources, regardless of their physical location.
  • For existing Smarthinking customers, we are offering an allocation of Smarthinking world class online tutoring support for impacted students. Your Enterprise Account Manager will be in touch with the university representative with more information.
  • For those wanting to take the Pearson Test of English Academic as part of their student visa requirements, we are offering a free online English language and test preparation course. Find more information at:
