Support and wellbeing
University should be an unforgettable experience that changes the way you see the world. That’s why we encourage you to explore beyond the classroom and take part in the social opportunities on offer.
Our dedicated Student Portal makes it easy to get the information you need, when you need it. From career guidance to counselling, learning support, university news to upcoming events, you’ll gain automatic access to the portal upon accepting your offer.
When you become a student with us, you get access to confidential and professional counselling, both in person and online. These services are available for those experiencing academic, mental health and personal concerns. Counsellors can also help to connect the wider community with specialist services.
Our community prides itself on being fair and inclusive. If you have a disability and/or health condition (including mental health), and you need to make any adjustments to your study program, our advisers are here to help.
We offer a range of programs and resources to help you thrive at university. These include training in time management, effective researching, assignment writing, and more.
Getting career advice while you’re at university eases the transition from study to work. We can assist you in making decisions about your career, finding work while you’re studying, and connecting you with employers.
Leadership and volunteering
Get involved in leadership and volunteering opportunities to develop your leadership skills, make unique connections and help others.
We believe that finances should never be a barrier to university. Find out more about our Pathway Scholarships.
Safe and Fair Community Unit
This is a university-wide service providing support, advice and information to keep everyone in our community safe and well. A safe and respectful University community is everybody’s responsibility.
Campus safety and security
Campus Security is available day and night to deal with any security or safety concerns.
The wellbeing of our students is extremely important to us and there are many ways we provide support.
