Seek course advice from your faculty
Course advisers provide specific unit and course advice to help you understand whether your program of study is meeting your goals.
Restrictions due to COVID-19 have changed the method of providing academic advice and service from your Faculty. Check with your Faculty below.
For advice on your degree or your Academic Progression, the Faculty Student Centre is your first point of contact, in particular if your Academic Standing is 'Academic Caution', 'Conditional Enrolment', or 'Probation'. Academic Advice is determined by the faculty of your major or first degree of a double degree.
Advisers may refer you to other teams across campus to ensure you get the support and information you need.
Types of advice
Academic Advice may take a variety of forms such as:
- attending a one-to-one session with a staff member
- a phone meeting
- an online learning module
- improving study skills
- attending a lecture
- watching a presentation
Before seeking academic advice
- If you commenced prior to 2020, you should read through the personalised study plan you received via your student email account before seeking academic advice.
- If you commenced from 2020 onwards, you should read the Handbook for the year you commenced your degree before seeking academic advice.
- To look up your degree, you need to find the year of admission of your course in the Course Handbook.
