First Year students
Congratulations on taking the next step in your studies and welcome to the Faculty of Arts.
As a student at our faculty, you are also part of a diverse, inclusive and exciting community. With numerous events, resources and support networks to explore – there will always be a helping hand to get you started.
The Student Support team are available to assist you with any enquiries you may have. Visit the Arts Office so you can speak one-on-one with an experienced Student Advisor about your studies and ask any questions you may have.
Enrolling into your courses for the first time doesn’t have to be done on your own. We’re here to help!
Our Enrolment Help page will walk you through each step of the enrolment process. You can also visit the Faculty of Arts Office to speak with a friendly student advisor or attend one of our Enrolment Advice Sessions.
Once you have finished enrolling, don't forget to visit the University's orientation site to get involved in orientation activities!
Help can come in all shapes and forms. If it’s academic advice you’re after, our Student Support Academic Mentors – who are also passionate academic staff - are available to offer one-on-one assistance.
If you want to hear it straight from the source, our Peer Mentoring program is a great way to get advice from a fellow student through weekly informal catch ups.
Writing and Maths Centre
As an Arts student, developing your writing skills is an integral part of your learning. The Writing Centre aims to help students develop this skill through free one-on-one consultation.
If it’s mathematics that you need help with, the Maths Learning Centre is there to help you succeed in anything numbers related.
Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)
Whether you want to go from a credit to a distinction, or just want to pass the course, our Peer Assisted Study Sessions aim to help you understand the key concepts of your course and improve your results. All sessions are run by students who have already excelled in the same course and are completely free.
We understand that students can sometimes face challenges in their life that may affect their ability to study. Student Life encompasses a variety of services to support you, including counselling, disability services, international student support and elite athlete support.
Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Student Support
You can also keep up to date on the latest happenings around campus through the private Faculty of Arts Facebook group.
