Student Advisors

UOW College and every UOW Faculty have advisors who you can contact with concerns or problems. Student Advisors provide liaison, information, support and referral to ensure students meet their educational goals as effectively and efficiently as possible and are aware of available options in relation to their study pathways. Students should make an appointment to see a UOW College Student Advisor if they wish to:

  • Discuss attendance issues, course progress requirements, study pathways, visa concerns, workload management and personal issues
  • Make a change to their agreed course of study
  • Apply for Academic Consideration

Seek advice regarding support services, e.g., Counselling Service, Disability Services, support classes, PASS sessions, conversation classes, grammar support, Maths support classes etc.

There is a Student Advisor available each working day. Students can make an appointment to see a Student Advisor either at the Reception desk in Building 30, by telephone or via email. A Student Advisor will see students immediately in emergency situations. Student Advisor contact details are as follows:
