As a UOW student, you have access to a range of support services from accessibility to counselling and wellbeing, careers, financial assistance, IT, and more. To find out about all our support services visit the UOW Current Students webpage or read more about some of our key services below to support you through your studies at UOW.
UOW counselling provides short term support for a wide range of personal, academic, social and psychological issues that may impact your life, academic performance or mental health. They provide group and education sessions about issues that impact many people such as exam stress, grief and loss and being healthy. If the issue you are experiencing would be better supported by longer term or specialised supports the clinicians will help you with referrals to those services. Free, confidential consultations are offered via telephone or video link.
If you are struggling or feeling overwhelmed, please seek help by registering with the service through our webpage.
Student Accessibility and Inclusion

Please feel free to contact the Student Accessibility & Inclusion team if you have any questions about your eligibility to register. Alternatively you can register online.

Student Engagement Specialists can help you with any questions you have about your studies, including providing information about academic support, or referring you to other UOW services or services in the local community. If in doubt, you can always ask a SES for help!
The Disability Services team offers guidance and support for students with support needs, whether they are permanent, temporary, episodic or fluctuating.
