QUT offers students welfare support through our Welfare Officers, and the QUT Guild.
Welfare Officers can help students with:
- managing their money
- Centrelink advice and advocacy
- applying for a Student Financial Assistance Scheme (SFAS) loan
- access to Bursaries,
- share housing tips
- finding community and university resources for financial assistance.
Our welfare support is professional, confidential and free to access. Students can make an appointment to speak to a welfare officer at any campus.
The QUT Guild runs an extensive food bank service for students who find themselves short of cash. They offer fresh fruit and vegetables, bread and packaged food.
The Guild also offers other services, including:
- tax help
- legal advice.
