With the long weekend ahead of us, students are reminded there is a number of support networks and resources they can utilise over the coming days and beyond if required. The Study Queensland FREE Student Support Hub is available to Sunshine Coast students to access and assist them during the COVID-19 crisis.
These free resources include the Queensland student online hub, an international student hotline and student support staff dedicated to supporting and encouraging students. Students can ring a 24/7 support line and now book virtual appointments with student support officers through the Queensland Student Hub. Book now and find out more about the free student support services available.
