Support

Learn more about how you will be supported during your time at college

Being part of a small college you can be assured that you will be provided with the best learning support and pastoral care. We have six residential tutors, four who live at Medley Hall and two at Cydelia House and we will also connect you with the right University Services to ensure that you achieve academic success.

Tutorial program

Medley Hall has a number of resident and non-resident tutors to support students with their academic course work and general approach to University studies.

The college tutorial program is designed both to complement and extend the tutorials you attend at the University of Melbourne. Tutorials are held in Medley Hall when there are four or more students undertaking a particular subject; this means that very popular or core first year subjects are those most likely to be covered. Where a college-based tutorial is not run for a particular subject, students are encouraged to attend tutorials through the Intercollegiate Tutorial Program. One-on-one consultations are also available. Programs in study skills, referencing, and essay writing are also offered if there is demand.

Intercollegiate Tutorial Program

Medley Hall residents may attend tutorials offered by the other Colleges of the University of Melbourne as part of the tutorial program. Each semester tutorials in over two hundred subjects are offered by the Colleges.

Pastoral care

All staff members at Medley have a pastoral care role. Residential Tutors provide immediate support to all students, including out-of-hours support.  The  Principal, Deputy Principal and Professional staff team are also committed to the very best pastoral care for our students and with the tutors, are positioned to make informed and appropriate referrals to local health care and other services. The Melbourne University Counselling Service offers free counselling to all university students and staff, while respecting people’s diversity.
