Student Services

American College offers a free training support service available to all students who have any questions or difficulties regarding their current training or employment as well as their future career development. The service aims to provide students with the information they need to help their own academic and career path. Our staff can assist you with questions regarding training and career pathways and opportunities, personal development opportunities, work placement and/or any other training / industry related questions.

This service offers practical answers to most of the questions and challenges faced by students in relation to their training and/or career. We are here to help and will always try to source the information you need to feel supported or refer you to an appropriate internal or external service if required.
