Support For Students Policy


The University of Adelaide seeks to make education an accessible, relevant, and enriching experience for a diverse range of Students. The University recognises that this diversity means its Students will encounter different challenges, and at different times in their degrees will need different types of support. The University is committed to supporting Students to participate in, and successfully complete, their study. This policy identifies the policies, procedures, and services available to Students, and staff, at the University to identify Students who are in need of support. This is to ensure that appropriate and timely support is provided, to give Students the best opportunities to be successful in their programs.
