Learning in tutorials
What are tutorials and how are they different to lectures?
Organising appointments with your lecturer
When you study you may need to meet with your lecturer in a consultation or you may need to talk to a staff member to get more information about your future study plans.
We all learn in different ways and when we study in a new country, we need to look at and think about different ways of learning.
Asking questions in lectures
Is there a correct way to ask questions during lectures? When is the right time? How do we know what to do?
Referencing in assignments
Almost every subject you take at university will require you to reference all your researched material, but what exactly is referencing? Why do you need to do it?
Our services and support contribute to the high success rate of our graduates who progress from QUTIC to their chosen QUT degree.
Language and learning support
We offer language and learning advisor services. Our advisors provide our students with individual and group support for their ongoing language and academic literacy needs. They also provide one-to-one consultations and workshops to develop language and academic learning skills.
Student welfare advisors
QUTIC welfare staff offer information, advice, support and counselling through individual appointments and a variety of workshops and activities. Their support will help you make the most of your experience of studying and living in Brisbane.
QUT services and international student support
Our students have access not only to our QUTIC services, but also a range of QUT services and facilities.
International Student Services can also help with specific support for international students.
Our trained mentors can help you adjust to living and studying in Australia. Each semester, QUTIC students help with orientation activities and support new students as they arrive and adjust to living and studying in Australia. This program provides a great opportunity for mentors to develop leadership skills and for new students to feel supported by their peers and make new friends.
Our students come from a diverse range of countries and backgrounds. Get to know your fellow students through our social activities, including excursions and sporting events. QUTIC students also have opportunities to meet other QUT students by joining QUT student clubs and associations and by participating in trips and activities organised by QUT International Student Services.
