In line with our value of Educational Excellence, the lecturers at Morling College are committed to helping students develop the skills and disciplines needed to research and write well.
If you have any concerns about your skills for study you can:
- Discuss your skills with the Academic Tutor
- Discuss your skills with your lecturer
- Discuss your skills and your assessments with the Director of Student Services
You can also find information and advice on the MC101: Study Skills Page for Theology and Counselling on the Morling Online (Moodle) page.
COURSE ADVICE AND PLANNING
It is a student’s responsibility to see that they fulfil the requirements of their chosen course of study at Morling College and we provide a number of resources to help you navigate your way:
- Student Handbooks and the Course Planning Information page on Moodle provide information on the requirements of each course.
- Course Advisors for each level of study are available to discuss your questions and options.
- The Academic Registrar is available to discuss all enrolment and course progression related enquiries.
All students at Morling College are encouraged to seek pastoral support throughout their studies. It is hoped that you will have your own support networks through family, friends, church communities and small groups. However, we also recognise that the process of moving to a new country and undertaking theological study in itself may raise a number of personal issues for you and/or your families for which these networks may not be entirely adequate.
All students are welcome to discuss matters with the Student Services Liaison, Community Life Officer or other members of faculty.
STUDENT RIGHTS AND POLICIES
Detailed information about policies relating to study, student wellbeing, dispute resolution, complaints and appeals can be found on the Policies pages of the Morling College, Australian College of Theology and University of Divinity websites.
While Morling College does not provide legal services to Overseas Students, Australia has legal protection for Overseas Students studying in Australia. If you have a question about your rights and responsibilities as an Overseas Student, and you cannot find the information you are seeking in the policies on the Morling College, Australian College of Theology and University of Divinity websites, or cannot obtain the information through a conversation with the Student Services Liaison, then you can contact the Australian Government’s Department of Education on 1300 363 079 or 13 33 97.
