Free Services

Academic Mentoring & Private Tutors

During first semester all first year students are allocated to an Academic Mentor Group. A senior student is appointed as a mentor for up to ten students in their course. Being part of a mentor group helps students settle into university life with others from their course and it provides a supportive environment for them. Attendance is compulsory for the first term and attendance is flexible after that.

Private tutoring is provided when a resident is struggling with a particular subject and is provided free of charge upon formal request to your Mentor or the Pastoral care team.

Professional Counselling

Saints provides a professional counselling service for residents who are struggling with their time here at Saints and JCU. Simply see our Pastoral Care & Resident Services Supervisor and they will book you sessions with a professional Counsellor, either face to face or via our online service. 

There is never a reason to suffer in silence, let us help you through your tough times.
