Sheridan faculty and administrative support staff are committed to your personal growth and success at Sheridan, in your career and in your personal life.

We know that a student’s academic and personal support needs can vary depending on their educational journey.

Students may be, for example:

  • First-year students or continuing students
  • Full-time or part-time students
  • School leavers or mature-age students
  • Domestic or international students
  • Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander students
  • Students with disabilities
  • Students of different religious traditions
  • Students transferring from other institutions

Sheridan faculty and support staff will facilitate a range of personal capacity-building activities for students, including:

  • Assisting students towards self-understanding and self-acceptance (clarifying values, understanding abilities, interests and limitations)
  • Assisting students in considering their life goals by relating their interests, skills, abilities, and values to the world of work, and the nature and purpose of higher education
  • Assisting students to develop an educational plan consistent with their life goals and objectives
  • Assisting students in developing decision-making skills
  • Providing accurate information about Sheridan academic support policies, resources and programs
  • Referring students to external institutional or community support services. (If these external organisations charge fees, the fees are to be paid by the students accessing those services)
  • Assisting students in evaluating progress toward educational plans and life goals
