Access and Inclusion FAQs

Is there a cost to register with Access and Inclusion?

No. Access and Inclusion provides a free and confidential service for students.

Who do Access and Inclusion help?

We service all enrolled CDU VET and Higher Education enrolled students.

I am a VET for Secondary Schools (VSS) student. Can I receive support?

VET for Secondary Schools (VSS) students are supported by your school, not CDU. If you are planning to study with CDU after you complete your VSS study, then please contact us.

Are scholarships available?

CDU offers scholarships in a range of categories. Use the scholarships finder to search for scholarhips you are eligible for or contact the Scholarships Officer for advice.

Information about external scholarships is available through the Australian Disability Clearinghouse on Education and Training and the Good Universities Guide.

Can I get tutoring through Access and Inclusion?

Academic support, like tutoring, is not provided by Access and Inclusion. Academic support is available through:

  • Your teaching staff (lecturers, tutors, etc.).
  • The Academic Language and Learning Success Program (ALLSP) can help you understand the requirements of your assessments and develop your study skills.
  • The Liaison Librarian for your subject area can help you find, evaluate and reference resources.
  • Studiosity, an online tutoring chat service is available from Sunday - Friday, 3pm – midnight (ACST). Studiosity tutors can assist with writing and subject-specific questions.
  • Learner Support Services (LSS) assist VET students to understand course material and break down assessment tasks.

Can I choose the gender of the Access and Inclusion team member I work with?

Yes.

I am leaving CDU for work or study. Can I get assistance?

Yes.
