If you experience any difficulties during your time studying in Australia, you can contact the International Sponsorships team to discuss your circumstances. We can help direct you to the support services available at the University.
If you are a new student, have struggled during your previous semester, or are completing an articulating or research program, you’ll be invited to a speed meeting with your Student Contact Officer (SCO).
These meetings provide an opportunity for us to monitor your academic progress and provide any assistance you need. In most cases meetings will take place twice a year and your attendance is compulsory.
If you’re a coursework student, you’ll need to provide us with a completed study plan. If you’re a research student, your supervisor needs to fill out a research academic progress report.
If you believe you still need additional academic support, you may be entitled to access the Supplementary Academic Support (SAS) scholarship fund.
The International Sponsorships team can approve access to SAS in the following situations.
You are entitled to $500 worth of SAS funding each six months, for the period of your scholarship. This can’t be accessed in advance and is accumulated if you don’t use it. This means in your first semester you have $500 SAS funding. If you do not use this during your first semester, in your second semester you have access to an additional $500, bringing your total to $1000.
SAS funding can be provided for:
To apply for SAS funding, complete the SAS Application Form (pdf, 160KB) and submit it to the International Sponsorships team with the supporting documents outlined on the form.
