English Language Support
If you are having trouble with your literacy, language or numeracy during your studies, please feel free to speak with the Student Services Coordinator about the free English Language support lessons. This is only available for vocational students. In addition, meet new friends and share experiences during your excursions. The Student NoticeBoard will also inform you of any exciting activities or important information.
Academic, Career and Employment Advice
Menzies Institute of Technology understands that students may require extra support or assistance in dealing with situations that can impact their studies. If you are encountering any personal problems such as depression, anxiety, family issues or any other situations, please come to see the Student Services Coordinator and we can arrange professional advice for you at no cost. Please be aware that any expenses to subsequent session after the initial appointment will be incurred by the student.
The Menzies staff are happy to help students arrange their initial accommodation in Melbourne. We recommend Homestay – living with an Australian family. Homestay is a fantastic way to get to know Australian families, live in a family home, practice English, learn about Australian culture and make friends.
Homestay accommodation is arranged by a third party organisation. Please indicate on the application form if you would like to arrange homestay accommodation and we will send you the necessary details and application form.They have the highest quality control and ensure that all homestays are provided with:
– Private single room with bed, desk, bed linen and towels
– two to three meals per day
– safe and reputable family
– guidance on public transport and how to get to Menzies.
The homestays will be located near Menzies or a short public transport distance away. This means you can be assured that you will be looked after and help you to adjust to your new environment in Melbourne.
