Book an appointment or submit an enquiry
There is often high demand for course planning and enrolment support appointments during our peak periods of June-August and November-March. During these peaks, appointment durations are shortened so we can open more booking times for you to choose from. Booking outside of peak periods will enable you to have a longer conversation with an Adviser.
Additional appointments are released daily at 9am and 12pm (AEDT/AEST), so please check back then to book the next available appointment. Alternatively you can submit an online enquiry or review our online information about how to plan your course. We encourage you to review your course plans regularly through your studies and contact our Course Advisers throughout the year.
You can either book an appointment or submit an enquiry.
