Student services

At Danford College, we want to make sure that you get the best out of your stay in Melbourne. We are committed to support you not only in your studies but also in your wellbeing and time beyond the campus.

Our dedicated staff members are looking forward to assisting you in your studies, assessments, accommodation, and other concerns that you need help with.

Pre-arrival information

If you have any questions before you travel to Australia, ask any of our friendly Student Services staff members.


Arrival when you arrive in Australia, you will receive a Danford College Handbook with information about services and resources on and off the campus. You will also learn practical information such as transport in Melbourne, food, shopping, health, as well as emergency and legal services.

You may also request for assistance through the Student Welcome Desk at Melbourne Airport. This is operated by the Victorian Government and offers essential information upon your arrival.

For Student Welcome Desk Opening Hours, visit Study Melbourne.


Upon the arrival of students, Danford College conducts an Orientation day to introduce students to various aspects of student life. The orientation also gives students the opportunity to tour the campus and discover nearby facilities such as banks and transport hubs. Moreover, it’s a great way to meet fellow students and the staff.

Counselling Services

Student welfare is important to Danford College. Our in-house Counsellor provides confidential support services with external referrals if necessary. You can approach the Counsellor for any of your needs including academic counselling, welfare, and grievance resolution.

You may book your appointment with the Counsellor through one of our Student Services Staff at the front desk or directly through the Counsellor.

Student Activities

Danford College organises various social events and updates its lively social calendar every month. Attending social events is a great way to meet new people, settle into Melbourne life, and explore the gorgeous sights around Victoria.

Some of our activities include regular Pizza Nights, Cupcake Days, and Bingo Parties (of course, there are prizes!). We also organise day trips throughout the month. See you at one of these activities and events!


Danford College has developed a “Student of the Month Award” as a way to recognise students with outstanding academic accomplishments. Be one of them!
