We offer students a wide range of support services – from scholarships and financial support, through to academic support, childcare and health and wellbeing services.

We understand that balancing study with work and life commitments isn’t always easy. That’s why our courses and support programs are designed to offer students from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to achieve their goals.

Regardless of your prior experience, economic and educational background, we want you to succeed.
