This resource has been created to help assist international students make the most out of meeting with their Faculty Academic Advisor or Support Coordinator. 

It is important to use the sample questions provided in the resource as a guide only, and to tailor them to your own unique circumstances. 

How to make an appointment with an Academic Advisor

Generally your Faculty Student Centre or Program Office will manage appointments with Academic Advisors and Support Coordinators. You may be able to access an online booking system to make your appointment, or you can visit the Student Centre, email, or call them to schedule an appointment.

Note: At different times of the semester it may be harder to make an appointment with your Faculty Academic Advisor as there is more of a demand to see them.

Peak times are usually just before census date, and just after the release of academic results. Please keep this in mind when making an appointment.

You can also find your Academic Advisor here in myUNSW. View the letter from the Registrar, which will advise you who your Academic Advisor is, or which Program Office you should contact.
