Help with assignments, exam preparation and in-class activities
For specific questions about your subjects
Ask your teachers and lecturers first. They understand what is needed to succeed in your subjects, and can usually give the best advice about assignments and how to prepare for tests and exams.
For extra help with maths, writing, and understanding assessment questions
One-on-one study support from academic peer tutors is available. Make sure to bring a draft of your assessment to your tutoring session.
Book a tutoring appointment.
For help in class
Sometimes you will come across a peer helper in your class. They are fellow students who have volunteered to answer questions, clarify unfamiliar words and phrases, assist you to prepare for assessments and class activities, and help you understand what is expected of you in a subject.
For when you still need more help
Email your subject coordinator or program manager to make a time to talk through your problem.
