Student Advisers and the Transition Support Service

students

The purpose of the Transition Support Service is to help students adjust to university life. 

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 the University of Tasmania there are people and resources to help with these problems, but knowing where to go can often 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.

If you are not sure which Student Adviser you should contact, please phone the Student Centre on +61 3 6226 2697.

CALD Student Advisers

The Cross Cultural Support Service assists students from Culturally And Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds (that is, recent migrants to Australia with English as a second language) and university staff who are working with them.

International Student Advisers

The International Student Advisers in Launceston and Hobart offer information and assistance with services such as pre-departure, settlement, orientation programs, personal welfare support, financial or safety concerns and referral to other services.
