Student Services

Student Services & Support. As a DkIT student we have a range of student services and supports available to you.

DkIT Student Services

The Student Services Centre in the Faulkner Building provides a range of personal support to students attending the Institute and aims to provide both advice and practical supports in a wide variety of circumstances.

Your college experience is about more than your course, it is about starting the next chapter of your life – your new world. At DkIT you have the chance to grow academically and personally, meet like-minded people and work towards achieving your dreams. Our job is to help you do this.

Disability Services & Support

Our Disability Office provides supports and advocates on behalf of any student with a physical, sensory, learning disability, or has a mental health condition that has a negative impact with the learning process.
