Health & Support Services

Australia offers a variety of support services for foreign students. This includes services provided by education providers and student unions, as well as local, state, local and local governments.

Australian education providers and Health Service Support

Australian education providers are proud to create a welcoming, friendly and supportive learning experience for foreign students to maintain good physical and mental health. Making friends and helping where needed can make a big difference. There are various resources to help the student's body adjust to life and study in Australia.

You can join a club or community, improve your health and fitness in the gym, join a sports club, go to a party, or volunteer for community service. See your institution's website for details on all the services and support we offer.

Disability support

Australia has laws that protect people from discrimination in many areas of public health. A person with a disability has the same right to education as a competent student. This means that institutions cannot refuse admission to a student with a disability and ask a student with a disability to meet the non-applicable requirements for strong students (for example, pay a higher fee) who refuses or restricts access to a disabled student (for example, not allowing him or her to travel.

Many institutions offer services to students who need help with their studies due to a disability or chronic health condition. This service may include voice recognition software, hearing aids or note-taking services. If you have special needs, you should contact your center a few weeks before you arrive to make the necessary arrangements.

However, the institution is not legally required to make changes if the changes involve significant difficulties or incur unreasonable costs. The institution must show that change is unfounded. If you are experiencing a problem with your health facility, you should first talk to your facility staff. If informal discussions do not resolve the issue, you can formally file a complaint. Institutions must have a system for students to register complaints.

If you feel you have a legal complaint that your institution may not recognize, you should go to the Australian Human Rights Commission. You can conduct a confidential investigation by telephone, but you must file a formal complaint in writing before the commission can take action.
