Your Success Coach is a qualified industry professional in their relevant field of study, able to enhance your professional credibility and give you the inside edge on how to develop your career into something you love doing. Your Coach will:
Provide career coaching – helping you build self-awareness of your natural talents so you can articulate and leverage them to become strengths
Get you job-ready – giving tips and advice on topics such as resume and cover letter writing, online branding and successful interview techniques
Introduce you to Careers Connect, our online platform where employers advertise internships, work placements, casual jobs and graduate jobs exclusively for you
Your Coach will contact you at the start of your course, whether you’re studying on-campus or online, and provide their contact details.
Alternatively, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The best people to help you first off are your Course and Career Advisor, or if you are an International Student dealing with an International Recruitment Advisor you can chat to them.
Alternatively, you can jump onto the website and select your courses. Firstly go to the Subject Selection page and choose your course structure. Review the recommended study plan and then select the Subject Selection tool to choose your classes.
As soon as you are enrolled in your course that’s when we can help out, so please get in contact with your Success Coach then.
Not all subjects every trimester are timetabled. Use the recommended study plan to see if there are any electives or other subjects that you can take. If you do need help deciding, then please contact your Success Coach for a suggested revised study plan.
If you find that the classes you want to take are full, please ensure you place yourself on the waiting list. You will receive an email within seven days informing you if there is a place available. Make sure you have a backup subject just in case. Again, if you need support in revising your study plan, contact your Success Coach.
Some subjects have prerequisites because you are required to take subjects in a particular sequence. If you wish to take a subject that is out of sequence then you must get permission from your Program Director.
You can find the list of your Program Directors in your Course page under the Academic team.

Success Coaches are trained in helping you with setting career and study goals. However, we have trained Counsellors based on each Campus and online who can offer free and confidential counselling to help you and all students enrolled in Australia. For more information go to the Counselling page.
Success Coaches do not have the authority to act on requests that involve changes to your course. Any changes to your course must be handled by Student Services. Please contact them directly either at your local campus.
If you are an international student please contact your Program Director directly to discuss changes to your study load as it is a visa condition that you must stay on a full-time study load. You can find the list of Program Directors in your Course page under the Academic team. For non-International students you can complete a form to request a change to your study mode, but please have a chat to your Success Coach who can help you with a revised study plan.
Your success coach is part cheerleader and part problem-solver.
Their first priority is to make sure you are connected, motivated and engaged in your learning.
Reach out if you find you've hit a wall or need some guidance to stay on track.
