How can Learning Advisers help?

Learning Advisers are trained professionals who are ready to help you develop a wide range of academic skills. Learning Advisers can meet with you for a one-on-one or group consultation to:

  • discuss an aspect of your assignment and academic expectations 
  • help you gain study skills and work on your writing skills

They can help you with:

  • task management and analysing assignment questions, 
  • researching, referencing and using relevant supporting evidence,
  • academic integrity,
  • reading, listening and note-taking,
  • academic writing, proofreading and editing strategies,
  • oral presentations,
  • basic computer skills such as formatting and page set-up, and
  • mathematical and statistical concepts (Learning STEM Advisers).
