Queensland International Institute provides a strong support network to all students, with the aim to assist them in achieving their educational and personal goals. We are aware that whilst in Australia student’s may undergo drastic transitions in their life and study, our student support staff are available for free consultations to provide students with support, assistance or simply be there to listen to students’ issues. Some issues that students may wish to speak to Student Services about, include but are not limited to:
- Study skills
- Exam anxiety
- Learning difficulties
- Course choices, and course progress requirements
- Accommodation issues
- Stress, depression, and low self esteem
- Legal matters
- Personal safety
- Harassment and discrimination
- Consumer protection
- Pathways to further education and training
Students are encouraged to approach their Trainer or our Student Service officers with any difficulties they may be experiencing in their study and/or personal lives. All students are able to access our guidance and support network, which may be done by contacting Student Services either by visiting Reception or emailing using the address below. Where required, such as where the student requires legal services or where students require further support or assistance, a student will be referred to external professional services such as Legal Aid or a professional counselor.
