First Year mentoring program

It can be a big change transitioning from your high school classroom to your university lecture theatre – that’s why we provide all first year students living on campus with extra academic support. You’ll join a study group that meets regularly, where you’ll receive help and advice from a trained student mentor.

Additional support

We provide additional support to students who have received a Weighted Average Mark (WAM) below 52 and have failed two or more subjects. Any residential student in this situation is required to take part in study skills training, and receive coaching on time management and motivation.

Textbook library

Need to borrow a textbook? You’ll find most textbooks on your required reading list in our Accommodation office for you to browse or borrow - and if we don’t have a resource that you need, let us know and we’ll see if we can get a copy for you.

Specialist subject tutors

You can receive extra academic support from an experienced student, and specialist subject tutors may also assist a student mentor group when there is a large group or to help with complex subjects.

Academic events

Our student leaders and staff provide a range of academic events throughout the year to support student progress. Events include guest speaker nights, social functions and career guidance.
