Throughout your tertiary study, it is essential to look after your physical and mental health. This will allow you to make the most of your learning opportunities, enjoy a positive student experience, and maximise potential for academic success.
Should you find yourself struggling with a personal, physical, emotional or mental health issue, we recommend you seek professional support from a healthcare provider as soon as possible. Make sure to advise one of the following CTC personnel, so we can support you: Learning Support Coordinator, Academic Dean or Postgraduate Coordinator, your lecturer(s).
