Academic and program advisers
Advisers provide guidance and answers to questions about unit content and how your degree program relates to your overall educational and employability goals.
If you're an undergraduate or postgraduate coursework student, you can meet an academic adviser from your faculty and have a chat about your learning journey, as well as receive advice that could help make things clearer for you.
The academic advice contact details listed below are for undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students only.
If you are a higher degree research student, each faculty department has an adviser.
If you have general questions about your degree program, progression in your course, faculty or university processes, your first point of contact is a student adviser from your faculty student centre. Depending on your enquiry, student advisers may refer you to other teams across campus to ensure you get the information you need.
