Meet the Academic Advisers

What we do

Our Academic Advisers are professional staff dedicated to delivering course advice to prospective and current taught students. We help students choose and plan their qualification, so that they may successfully navigate their journey through university and achieve their future goals. We offer advice about:

  • qualification regulations
  • specific guidance on academic pathways
  • enrolment decisions
  • credit transfers
  • changes of course
  • academic standing
  • progression
  • readiness for graduation and employment.

We work as part of a collaborative network of university advisers, marketers, student information and customer service professionals. Our Academic Advice team members are all registered with NACADA (National Academic Advising Association) and we align with the core values of the NACADA global community: Respect, Professionalism, Inclusivity, Empowerment, Integrity, Commitment and Caring.

We're here to help you achieve your goals and reach your potential. We have an Adviser waiting to assist you.
