Aboriginal Student Advising

From mainstream counselling to visiting with Elders, there are a number of ways Aboriginal students (both undergraduate and graduate) can access support. This can be an informal chat or something more structured, depending on your comfort.

Whether you're having a bad day, have received unexpected news, or have been wrestling with something for a long time, you don't have to deal with it alone. Everyone experiences confusion and uncertainty sometimes.

The support provided through the Aboriginal Resource Centre can be a chance to talk things through, seek advice or simply share with someone who will respect the challenges you're experiencing.
