Student Support Services

 


 

Personal Support 

Akademia College seeks to identify students requiring additional personal support, ensuring that early intervention is provided in a timely, reasonable and consistent manner.

Akademia College is here to support you at times of any emotional, psychological or mental health difficulties. We welcome students of any age, class, ethnicity, faith, belief, culture, disability, sexual orientation and gender identity.

We will work with you to help you manage your well-being and mental health, to develop insights into your situation alongside the tools and strategies to make the most of your time at College.  

 

 

Academic Support

A student may be identified as requiring additional academic support if they are not progressing satisfactorily, are potentially at risk of exclusion, or where their physical or mental well-being is reasonably considered to deserve some form of intervention by the college.

Students requiring personal or academic support will be contacted by the Faculty. It is important that students obtain appropriate prompt support once a need has been identified so that support strategies can be applied prior to students becoming at risk of academic failure.

Akademia College provide support services to assist students who are struggling with study demands. These include:

Program and enrollment advice (Admissions & Registrar);

Faculty specialist academic support staff;

Study support (Student Welfare);

IT support;

Library support;

Research support;
