First Year Advisors

First Year Advisors form part of the wider First Year Experience team, alongside Orientation & Transition.

First Year Advisors offer personalised guidance and support to help students navigate the challenges of their initial university experience, fostering a smoother transition into academic and university life.

Why might I want to speak to a First Year Advisor?

You are encouraged to contact your First Year Advisor at any time, but especially if you:

  • Have an equity background and would like a safe space to find out and access support services available to you.
  • Would like regular support in relation to your first year, unit progress or just to talk about your general experience during your studies.
  • Need guidance in mapping your goals, creating action plans or exploring opportunities to enhance your journey at Curtin.
  • Are struggling with your studies or failing your assessments and don’t know what to do about it or just looking for study tips and strategies.
  • Need help understanding uni jargon and ‘How-To’s’ like; how to ask for an extension, or what to do if unexpected circumstances are impacting your study, including personal matters and challenges outside of uni.
