Academic Support

Benefit from study skills workshops, dedicated academic advisers and free one-on-one tutorials to give you the tools and encouragement you need to succeed.

Personal Assistance

Small class sizes maximise face-to-face teaching time, but sometimes you need a little extra help. That’s why UTS:INSEARCH lecturers and tutors are available to help. Small group tutorials with academic and English language staff are also available, as well as study skills workshops to help you become a more efficient student.

Academic Advisers

We know that student life can be challenging, that's why we have dedicated Academic Advisers. If students are having trouble coping or would like to discuss study options, they can see an Academic Adviser.

UTS:INSEARCH has six Academic Advisers who are happy to assist students with personal difficulties, coping strategies, assessing their progress, rules and procedures, time management, stress, depression and any other factors that may impact their studies. Academic Advisers are located on Level 4 of the Blue Building from 8.30am-4pm, Monday to Friday. Students can either just drop in or make an appointment for a one-on-one consultation.

Academic Advisers can also refer students for further professional help to the UTS Counselling Service and the UTS Medical Service, as well as assist with Special Consideration, when a student’s work is affected by unexpected serious illness or misadventure and Special Needs, in which a student’s learning is affected by a disability (physical or mental) or by on-going illness.
