Central is committed to supporting international students during their studies, from the moment you arrive through to graduation. We aim to ensure your experience here is enjoyable and rewarding.
Before commencing your course, you will attend an International Student Orientation day to introduce you to Central and all the support services available. Once your course starts there are several different areas who can offer you assistance.
Central has a dedicated International Centre focused entirely on the personal and academic needs and general wellbeing of our international students. Services include English language support, student advisors, and counselling. Once you are enrolled you will have an International Student Advisor available to you, whose responsibility is to assist you with any academic issues.
The Centre also provide International Student Counsellors - registered psychologists who are trained to effectively help with problems international students sometimes experience. Some of our international students face feelings of social anxiety (or shyness), loneliness, homesickness or feelings of depression and not being able to cope. The counsellors can assist by teaching specific skills and providing practical assistance.
