Our support services contribute to the high success rate of  graduates who progress from QUTIC onto their chosen QUT degree. 

Language and Learning Advisors

Our Language and Learning Advisors (LLAs) will provide you with additional support for your ongoing language and academic literacy needs outside the classroom. 

They provide one-on-one consultations, drop-in sessions and workshops around important topics such as creating reference lists, in-text citations, effective paraphrasing, writing with accuracy, and perfecting your pronunciation and presentation skills. This extra support means you will be better prepared to achieve academic success at QUT.

Welfare Advisors

We know that traveling to a new country to study can be challenging, so our dedicated Welfare Advisors are here to help. They provide valuable information and advice, such as time management, health and safety, writing a resume and budgeting as a student, to help you make the most of your experience studying and living in Brisbane. They also provide confidential counselling and support if you need to talk to someone about your study, finances or personal problems.

Activities Club

Our Activities Club is free to join and a great way to meet other students through our fun social activities. There is always something exciting to do, including the Music Club, cooking classes, sporting events, basketball, table tennis, yoga and day trips to places around Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Byron Bay.

Student Mentor Program

Students in the Mentorship Program help with orientation activities and support new students as they arrive and adjust to living and studying in Australia. Through the program, current students benefit by developing their leadership skills and new students can feel supported and make new friends.
