If you are an International student or resident student from a non-English speaking background, there is support available to help you develop the language and academic skills necessary to succeed at university.
- Drop in to Conversation Club to improve your spoken English held at Sippy Downs and South Bank.
- You can meet with an academic skills adviser for an individual consultation and receive practical advice.
- You may also attend free Academic Skills essentials sessions held throughout the semester. These sessions will help you in areas such as proofreading, academic writing and oral presentations.
- Attend the free, four–week English for Academic Study Module. This informal module is specifically designed for international students from a non-English speaking background with minimum entry level English skills, or students from a non-English speaking background who are Australian residents. Classes follow a set syllabus but allow for specific needs (eg paragraphing, summarising and paraphrasing).
- Attend the three-week Assignment writing at USC for International students to learn about the academic expectations at USC and strategies for accessing additional support.
- The Improve your writing module is designed for students with English as a first language.
