Everyone has the potential to succeed, but sometimes you might need a bit of extra support and guidance. That's why, from enrolment to graduation, you will have your own Success Coach who will be there to help you throughout your university journey.
Our Success Coaches bring with them a wealth of experience and industry knowledge. Your allocated Success Coach will work with you to build a personal Success Plan so you have a clear roadmap to achieve your ambitions. Your Success Plan will be tracked and evaluated against our five pillars of student success:
Your Success Coach will help you to manage your studies so you can stay on the path to success.

When I describe the role of a success coach to a student, I often liken it to a running partner in a marathon - we'll run alongside you from the beginning of your journey until the finish line. If you need to pause or slow down along the way, then we'll do the same as you.

When you feel like your whole world is crumbling, all it truly takes is for that one person to give you hope. In my case, this was my Success Coach, Nathan. After contacting him regarding my situation and explaining my circumstances to him, he has been nothing but sympathetic and understanding. He has gone above and beyond, and for that, I'm forever grateful and appreciative.
