Ever find yourself in need of some help during your time at uni but never really knowing who or what to ask? We’ve got you covered!

The University is running a series of zoom sessions with the Counselling Service, who’ll be answering some frequently asked questions about support services available to students. This is the perfect time to get all your answers without having to do the scary bits like asking yourself, getting out of your comfort zone, or feeling like a fool. (Side note here: you are NOT a fool, we all need help sometimes!)


These zoom sessions will be focused around 5 different areas:

–       Finance

–      Counselling

–      Indigenous Students 

–      AccessAbility 

–       Wellbeing 


Session times are:

–      Monday October 26, 10am

–      Tuesday October 27, 3pm

–       Thursday October 28, 12pm

–       Wednesday October 28, 2.30pm

–       Friday October 30, 11am
