Access support when you need it
Preston is Melbourne Polytechnic’s counselling hub. The service is free and by appointment. If you’re feeling concerned about your homework, feeling stressed, or even worried about an issue at home, come in and make an appointment to chat to someone. If you’re an international student, make the most of our friendly International Office on our Preston campus, which is here to help and support you during your time at Melbourne Polytechnic.
