Student Access and Success Officers will work in collaboration with other areas within the Division of Student Life, Student Administration, Recruitment and Admissions and academic areas and will provide information and support for students from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds from pre-orientation through to graduation. Additionally, the Access and Inclusion office provide support and advice for international students who are under 18 and elite athletes.
