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.

Zoe from Mongolia at University of Sydney

"For us international students, it's really hard to speak in a different language. At Taylors College, I didn't understand anything at all in my first few classes because I never practised listening and speaking before. Then our teachers were very supportive and they always tried their best to make us understand. From that, I felt a bit more confident to talk with my teachers and to ask for help."
