Welcome to week twelve!

This can be a stressful time for some folks with major assessments due and exams coming up. If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, there are some steps that you can take:

  • Get in touch with Student Support to discuss your options and make a plan of action. You can get on to us by emailing, booking an appointment for us to contact you, or by calling 02 6773 4430
  • If you are worried about an assignment due date, make sure that you talk to your Unit Coordinator and perhaps consider requesting a Special Extension of Time
  • If things get really bad you could even consider seeking Withdrawal Without Penalty or Remission for your units. Get in touch with us to talk about those processes

If the stress is getting to be too much, remember that you can talk to the Counselling service and check their website for resources. They can be very busy around this time so there can be a wait on appointments, but there is also the after-hours phone service that you can call or text from 4:00pm and over the weekend on:

  • Phone – 1300 661 927
  • Text – 0488 884 169

The Counselling Team also has contact details on their website for other services if you are in need of urgent help.

We hope that some of this advice is useful. As always, please feel free to get in contact with us if there is anything that you want to talk about.
