Should you need support to talk to us about a complaint, you can bring a support person along with you, this could be anyone you feel comfortable with. If you’d like a support person, but don’t have one, our campuses have student representatives that can support you (educational services only) or we can put you in touch with external agencies that can advocate on your behalf (all participants). Talk to our staff about how to access this help.



We aim to resolve all complaints within 15 days of a formal complaint being lodged.
