Counselling services

APIC offers a free counselling service to students. It is available on campus for Sydney students and by telephone and email for Sydney and Melbourne students. Melbourne students can also be referred to an independent counsellor. The counsellor has expertise working with international students.

The counselling service provides support for students who are experiencing difficulties such as stress and anxiety, relationship issues, financial problems and feeling unable to cope, and is completely confidential. The counsellor is there to listen and provide support which could include referral or appropriate information.

To make an appointment, please click here or drop in to the Regent Street (Sydney) campus between 9.00am and 12pm on Tuesdays. Melbourne students can access this service as a telephone or online counselling service during the same hours.
