Student Success Network

Breadcrumbs

The Student Success Network provides a friendly and supportive environment where students can connect with other students to share ideas, experiences, challenges and advice about both the academic and social aspects of being a student, and build networks to support and guide you through your program. 

You can connect with a Student Success Leader, a more experienced student who has been in your shoes before and know that university can be an exciting but sometimes challenging journey. Student Success Leaders want to share their experiences with you, offer support, hints and tips to help you along the road to success.

You can also become a Student Success Leader and share your experiences with other students.

Connecting to the Student Success Network can assist you to:

  • transition to University life, if you're new to USC
  • meet new people and find out about social groups or study groups relevant to your discipline
  • learn about support services available
  • hear and learn from more experienced USC students

There are lots of ways you can meet and connect with other students ... here are some ideas to get started...

We'll call you between 8:30am-4:30pm Monday-Friday. Alternatively you can contact the Student Success Team via studentsuccess@usc.edu.au.

  • Needing extra help with academic content and skills
  • Having second thoughts about their programs or course enrolment
  • Working out effective strategies for juggling study with work, family and life
  • Dealing with unexpected health or personal crises
  • Knowing what their options are if they fail a course or experience difficulties with their academic progress.

The Student Success Team:

  • provide information and advice about the student support services that are available and assist you to access and use these services.
  • will invite you to participate in all sorts of activities and events.
  • will ask you about your student experience and value your feedback and suggestions.
  • will keep an eye on your academic progress throughout your program and get in touch if we see you may need some guidance or support.
  • may reach out and contact you directly to offer information and proactive support via phone, sms or email from time to time.
