The purpose of the Transition Support Service is to assist you to adjust to university life and to help to resolve any issues that may be affecting your university studies.
Many students struggle with a number of issues while studying, for example, adjusting to the academic environment, understanding how to access university facilities or understanding university processes and procedures. Students may also encounter stress, financial problems, housing problems, relocation issues, physical and mental health problems, relationship issues and problems with time management. At UTAS there are a number of people and student support services that can help you with these problems, but often knowing where to go can be difficult.
Student Advisers offer individualised assistance to help you solve your problems or identify where you need to go for help with these issues. Your Adviser will refer you to specialised support if necessary and follow up to see how it's all going. From simple requests for information, to more complex and serious matters, Student Advisers are your first point of contact.
Student Advisers can be found at various locations on both the Northern and Southern UTAS campuses, and specialise in different areas of study:
