Helping students

This section provides information to assist providers in their conversations with students.

Students may approach you for assistance with their applications. In many cases they will be able to help themselves by using our website, where they can log in to MyStudyLink to check the status of their applications.

Should the student need to talk to us, they can call our Contact Centre from 8.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday on 0800 88 99 00.
