Breadcrumbs

What is a drop in session?

It's a chance to ask an academic skills adviser about your writing or study skills. They are 10-15 minute consultations, and no bookings are required.

  • Do you need to get started on an assignment?
  • Do you need to know how to find books or journal articles?
  • Are you unsure how to structure an assignment?
  • Do you need help deciding if a source is scholarly or peer-reviewed?
  • Do you need help with referencing?
  • Do you want to work with course staff and other students?
  • Do you have a specific question about an assignment?

If so, come along to a drop-in session to build research, writing, study and referencing skills. An academic skills adviser, a librarian and staff from a variety of courses will be available to assist.

Peer support is also available at various drop-in sessions - look for Study Leaders in the blue shirts.

What else is available?

If you cannot make it to the drop-in sessions:

  • make an appointment with a Learning Adviser, by logging into Student Hub using your USC username and password and under the Learning tab, navigate to Appointments
  • see a Librarian on Level 1 of the Library and find out about research classes
  • check out the Guides at USC library which can help you do assignment research
