Being an international student is exciting, but it can also be challenging. We have a designated Student Support Officer who can be approached to gain advice on academic and personal issues. The Student Support Officer offers professional and confidential advice in areas where they can help. They can also provide links to external sources of support if necessary.

The types of common issues that the Student Support Officer is able to provide support are:

Academic issues
Students are able to gain advice and support in ensuring they maintain appropriate academic levels. All students’ progress is monitored and guidance and support provided where non satisfactory results are identified.

Personal / Social issues
Students have access to the Student Support Officer through normal Institute hours

The Student Support Officer is able to refer students to appropriate accommodation services and is always available to discuss any issues or concerns a student may have with their accommodation arrangements.

Medical Issues
Student Administration will always have an up to date list of medical professionals within access from the Institute location and any student with medical concerns should inform the student support officer who will assist them in finding a Doctor.

Social Programs
The student support officer will occasionally organise social events that allow all students enrolled to mingle and socialise. These events may range from cultural and sightseeing events, to dinners, excursions and sporting events.
