Your wellbeing

Personal counselling

Is something on your mind? Talk to someone. Our counsellors are here to help when you need someone to listen. It could be about anything, from study and career concerns to health and personal issues.

Support if you’re under 18

Younger students get extra support from our Student Advisers. If you also have a Caregiver, they’ll be in regular contact with the College and your parents, to make sure you’re happy and doing well. For extra security, it’s College policy to check all accommodation for students under 18.

Arriving from the airport

Landing in Australia for the first time is a big deal for most students. To put your mind at ease, we can arrange for someone to meet you at Sydney International Airport. We’ll also give you a 24-hour phone number. If your flight details change, you can call us at any time of day or night.

Let us know as soon as possible if you’d like us to meet you with an airport transfer.
