Where to find support

Because student life can be tough

A professional counsellor can be easier to speak to than friends or family, and they can help you resolve any problems you may be having without judgement.

If you are facing difficulties that are interrupting your studies, you can make an appointment to discuss study or personal issues, academic assistance, accommodation difficulties, family matters, attendance issues and homesickness.

Curtin College has a Student Counsellor, and can also provide referrals to the University’s counselling service. Counselling is completely confidential and free for students to use.
