Academic Support

Academic and career services are a critical component of the support we provide to Collegians. Under the leadership of the Director of Academic & Career Development, King’s College provides outstanding support to Collegians as they transition into university, progress through their studies, and prepare to commence their professional careers.

Collegians have access to a wide range of academic support, resources, and facilities including:

a dedicated Learning Centre with well-equipped individual, group, and specialised study spaces

academic advice (e.g., on enrolment options, study plans, changing programs, understanding program requirements, applying for extensions and Deferred/Supplementary exams, requesting credit transfers, study abroad processes, access plans, and more)

the ‘Flourishing at University’ Program: a series of sessions offered throughout the semester that assists students with the transition to university learning environments. Sessions cover time management, preparing for classes and exams, academic writing, research skills, and public speaking. Tailored to new university students but all students welcome to attend/participate.

writing consultations: a dedicated writing expert provides students with individualised sessions to improve their academic writing skills and offers general proofreading and editing support.

Tutorial Program

King’s College specialises in helping young people succeed academically and our extensive tutorial program is a key part of this support.

King’s College offers a comprehensive selection of over 130 tutorials each week across all subject areas and disciplines to supplement learning support provided at the university. The program involves 60+ academic staff, many with postgraduate qualifications, teaching experience, and/or industry expertise.

Collegians learn with other students through group offerings but can also request 1-on-1 tutorials should additional support be required. The King’s Tutorial Program is considered one of the best collegiate academic programs in Australia.
