Student Support Services

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

We know that a student’s academic and personal support needs can vary depending on where they are 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
  • Students with disabilities
  • Students of different religious traditions
  • Students transferring from other institutions

 

College 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 College 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

 

Support for students with disabilities

Sheridan College defines a disability or medical condition as any significant physical, emotional, psychological, or health disorder of a chronic or episodic nature that is likely to affect you in the course of your studies. The College welcomes applications from students who require additional assistance to undertake courses successfully. If you have a disability or medical condition, we strongly advise you to contact the College in the year preceding your proposed enrolment in order to discuss possible accommodations and give you the best possible opportunity to succeed in your studies.

 

International Student Support

Sheridan College provides a range of support for international students. The Director of Student Services will be your first port of call for any support matters. 

 

The Sheridan College Handbook 2019 contains valuable information about a range of support services available to students.

 

In addition, Sheridan College partners with MATEinOz to provide further support to international students arriving in Australia.

Post-arrival, many students face challenges which could potentially derail their ability to integrate, enjoy and successfully complete their studies here in Perth.

The first 3 months in particular are usually very difficult as students attempt to find their way around the city of Perth, build relationships and find employment all while attempting to focus on their primary reason for coming to Australia which is “Education”.

MATEinOz services have been designed to ensure students individual needs are met, firstly by having an in-depth discussion about the students cultural beliefs, expectations and outcome required from their stay in Australia. Customised advisory services (practical and specialist) will be devised to suit, including mentorship programs and gateways to employment, whilst providing a sound environment (security and peace of mind), all of which we needed when arriving in Perth for the first time.

 

MateinOz have specialist strategic partners in:

  • banking;
  • medical insurance;
  • telecommunications;
  • Property (rental assistance);
  • migration law;
  • travel,
  • taxation; and
  • Superannuation
