Student Services

SuniTAFE’s Student Support Services (SSS) department provides free and confidential services to students and staff across all SuniTAFE campuses. Services include disability support, information, resources, counselling, student wellbeing and referral services which meet individual student needs.

Support staff are on hand to assist with personal and study related matters before they create difficulties. Student Support Services staff are located at both the Mildura and Swan Hill campuses, with Mildura support staff providing outreach services to the Robinvale Campus.

Mildura support staff also includes the Retention Officer. The Retention Officer actively promotes and communicates access to Institute services that support the student experience and ensures early intervention where there is the possibility of course withdrawal.
