Support for business students

We understand that university study can bring unique challenges. That's why we offer specialist learning support and activities to ensure that you reach your full academic potential while you're studying with us.

Study support

Student Learning Advisers

Student Learning Advisers (SLAs) are experienced students who offer peer support to other students. They can help you with your course, assignment or exam preparation questions. As the SLAs are business students they will understand your concerns and questions, and have the experience and ability to answer them. SLAs are available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Learning advisers

Our professional Learning Advisers provide academic support across all disciplines for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. They can give you guidance in:

  • explaining task descriptions in plain English
  • planning
  • structuring assessment items
  • supporting views with evidence
  • understanding academic honesty and plagiarism.

Scholarships

We want you to succeed. Our scholarships can help you achieve your goals through financial support, work experience and exciting networking opportunities.

We have scholarships for our students including for international students, women, students experiencing financial hardship, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, and specific courses and study areas.

Apply and find the scholarship that takes your success to the next level.
