CALD student support

We know that students from Culturally And Linguistically-Diverse (CALD) backgrounds have specific, and very diverse, needs. CALD covers anyone from a non AU/NZ country of birth or non-English Speaking Background who is not studying on a student visa - everyone from Australian citizens from English-speaking countries to newly arrived migrants or refugees, and our service is designed to provide support in the areas where you need it.

Our Multicultural Officers can provide:

  • Orientation sessions to help you access key University services and understand more about life in Australia
  • Activities and excursions to enable you to meet other students
  • Information about and referrals to University and community services including Centrelink, counselling, childcare, academic support and accommodation
  • A chat and a cuppa if you need someone to talk to
  • Anything else - please click on the links on the left for more information

We are also a resource for staff - if you have questions about working with CALD students, or want to refer someone to us, we'd be happy to hear from you.
