Personal Support

Enjoy your freedom but have help when you need it

Residential staff, led by the Deputy Master, are available to listen to the concerns of students, and provide guidance and support. Staff members are scheduled to be on duty to assist students with health or personal issues at all times, including weekends and evenings.

A team of Residential Assistants, employed by the College, provide ongoing guidance, support and oversight to College Members during their residency at King’s College. Senior staff are present seven nights per week to help ensure the safety of the students.

Every student is part of a small community in their flat. A Residential Assistant will help develop the flat community, building friendships and teamwork among those that live there . All RA’s are First Aid trained.

Support from your fellow Kingsmen

Living among like-minded men in the King’s community allows friendships and personal support networks to develop easily. It means there are people you can attend lectures with and have after class discussions. You can share academic information and discuss assignments and essays – especially important if you come across an academic or course-related problem!  The most important aspect of academic support often comes from other students living at College.

Senior students can often give personal advice about the subjects they found interesting, the lecturers they found engaging and tips about past exams, information you simply cannot find inside the university handbook. Peers also provide an excellent source of academic support – around exam period people can often be found in the library or in tutorial rooms studying together or finishing group assignments.

Academic Support

Whilst students are ultimately responsible for their own results, the College will provide support to ensure they have the best opportunity to succeed. In addition to the academic leadership provided to Kingsmen by the Director of Learning Tony Andres, Academic Consultant, Emeritus Professor Trevor Heath OAM and the Deputy Master, Peter Walker, academic guidance will be provided by a number of Resident, Non-Resident Tutors and Residential Assistants

In addition to attending university lectures and tutorials, the College offers its residence a comprehensive tutorial program aimed at complimenting university tutorials. The College runs over 90 in any given week, increasing closer to exam time. The timetable is advertised in the Weekly Wyvern magazine.

International Student Support Programme

Studying in a new country can be a daunting prospect. Not only does living at King’s College make the transition from your home country easier but the College has an International Student Support Programme designed to help you adjust and support you during your time in Brisbane.
