If you have difficulty adjusting to student life in Australia; experience culture shock, loneliness or sadness, you’re not alone. Help is available. Before issues or concerns start to impact your studies – you should talk to a professional.
If concerned about your academic progress, studies, finances or personal problems, an Academic Adviser may help. There’s no need for an appointment.
