In certain cases, your lecturer may enrol you into one or more of the academic modules if they decide you require extra help.

The Academic Skills Support Program is not a mandatory course and though attendance may be taken, it does not impact your assessments and overall result.

You can book a one-to-one appointment with your Academic Skills Advisor through email for a Monday or Tuesday.

As Echo is only in the office on a Monday and Tuesday, it may take longer for her to reply to your emails. If there is anything urgent that you require, you can contact your International advisor Kelly at [email protected] and she may be able to assist you.

The workshops are held weekly during each semester on:
Monday 10:00am-11:00am (Academic Skills)
