Academic advising can help you understand and address key factors that influence your academic progress and success. Early intervention can enhance your performance and prevent the serious consequences of continued poor performance. Academic advising can cover a broad range of topics, so it is important to understand where to seek relevant support.

If you have a question about areas such as:

  • Enrolment
  • Program specialist advice
  • Program Structure (including Work Integrated Learning)
  • Majors/Minors
  • Degree Progression
  • Enrolment Blocks
  • Maximum Time to Complete
  • Maximum Repeat Fails
  • Appeals
  • Factors Influencing Your Academic Performance
  • Special Consideration and/or Fee Remission
  • If you're onshore and have a visa expiring in the next six months, please contact the Nucleus Student Hub.

    Please note a Student Support Advisor can also help with wellbeing support, visa-related questions, accommodation, reduced study load, program leave and academic success.
