Student Support Services
If you are having trouble with your literacy, language or numeracy during your studies, please feel free to talk with the Student Services Coordinator about the free English Language support classes. This is only available for vocational students.
In addition, meet new friends and share experiences during your excursions. The Student NoticeBoard will also inform you of any exciting activities or important information.
You can also join the Menzies Job Search Club which is on every Fridays at the Menzies English Centre and get useful tips and hints on the following:
– How to write a resume that is perfect for the job (Resume Sample)
– How to approach employers for jobs
– How to present yourself during the interview and to the employer
– Where to find jobs
Also you can follow us on Facebook for the latest posting of part-time jobs that you may be interested in.
The Menzies staff are happy to help students arrange their initial accommodation in Melbourne. We recommend Homestay – living with an Australian family. Homestay is a fantastic way to get to know Australian families, live in a family home, practice English, learn about Australian culture and make friends.
Homestay accommodation is arranged by a third party organisation. Please indicate on the application form if you would like to arrange homestay accommodation and we will send you the necessary details and application form.
They have the highest quality control and ensure that all homestays are provided with:
– Private single room with bed, desk, bed linen and towels
– two to three meals per day
– safe and reputable family
– guidance on public transport and how to get to Menzies
The homestays will be located near Menzies or a short public transport distance away. This means you can be assured that you will be looked after and help you to adjust to your new environment in Melbourne.
Menzies operates an airport meeting service. It can be daunting to arrive at the airport and there is nobody to greet you. We will meet you at the airport and take you to your accommodation in Melbourne safely.
All airport meeting and pick up services are arranged by a third party organisation. Please indicate on the application form if you would like Airport Meeting service and we will send you the necessary details and forms.
