If you have a migrant background or are an international student, you may be experiencing stress coming from unrealistic academic expectations.

How we can help

Curtin’s University Psychological and Counselling Service is offering a free 3-week workshop aimed at supporting students with managing their wellbeing amidst cultural or family pressures to succeed academically.

This workshop covers topics such as the ins and outs of stress, growth mindset and the process of differentiating from your family of origin to your ‘adult self’.

Spanning over three weeks, the workshops consist of 90-minute sessions to help you develop practical coping skills.

Limited spaces – you are encouraged to reserve a spot soon! Booking is essential. Please note that you are required to wear a mask at the venue at all times.

Visit our group program and workshops webpage for a full list of our upcoming groups, webinars, and seminars.

If you think you experience stress that affects your life or studies but aren’t sure what to do about it,  get in touch with our Student Wellbeing Advisory Service, see one of our bulk-billed GPs or book an appointment with one of our Curtin psychologists.
