From study to time out, we help you get the best out of your time in Melbourne. Our dedicated staff provide assistance with studying, assessment, accommodation, and anything you need help with during your time in Melbourne.
Our friendly Student Services staff are there to help you settle into your new life in Australia. When you arrive in Australia, we provide a Danford College handbook with information about services on and off-campus, as well as necessary information regarding transport, food, shopping, and health, emergency, and legal services.
Once you’ve arrived, we conduct an orientation day. It’s an introduction to all aspects of life at Danford, and it gives you a chance to look around our campus and discover nearby facilities such as banks, transport, facilities and more. It is also a great opportunity to meet your fellow students and to get to know the staff.
Your welfare in Melbourne is important to us. Our on-campus counsellor offers a confidential support service, with external referral if required. For any needs, from academic counselling to welfare and grievance resolution, bookings are available by contacting one of our Student Services staff at the front desk or our registered counsellor.
There is a Student Welcome Desk at Melbourne Airport which is visible when you arrive in Melbourne. This is run by the Victorian government, and offers vital information on arrival. For Student Welcome Desk opening hours, visit www.studymelbourne.vic.gov.au
Danford College has a lively and highly active social calendar which is updated every month. It’s a great way to settle into Melbourne life, meet new friends, or go further afield to see some of the gorgeous sights around Victoria. We hold regular Pizza Nights, Cupcake Days, and Bingo Parties (with prizes!), and go on exciting day trips throughout the month.
From start to finish
Our student support services and network will help you to succeed, stay healthy and happy while studying at Danford College. We are here to help you during every step of your Danford College journey. The college has developed a Student of the Month Award as a way to recognise students with outstanding academic accomplishments……. Be one of them!
