Our Purpose

The Learning Centre offers academic skills support to all students at The University of New South Wales. We assist students with the transition to university learning through a range of programs and resources and support them throughout their studies. We also provide support to postgraduate coursework and research students with thesis writing and presentation skills.

The Learning Centre aims to:

  • create a place where students are supported in their independent pursuit of learning.
  • work with students to develop strategies to allow them to explore and fulfil their academic potential.
  • work closely with colleagues in faculties, schools and other units.
  • contribute professionally to the broader academic community.

Why students come to The Learning Centre

Students choose to come to the Learning Centre to improve their academic written and spoken communication skills,  Some students use our services because they are finding their assignments a challenge, others because they want to improve an already successful academic performance.

What we offer UNSW

Assistance for academic work is provided through workshops, individual consultations, and extensive online academic skills resources. Academic Skills Plus is a General Education course that teaches academic skills in conjunction with challenging intellectual content.  We also work in collaboration with UNSW colleagues in Faculties and other units to enhance student learning by developing discipline-based support and resources.

 

Who we are

The Learning Centre is part of Student Life and Learning in the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic). Our staff members combine their extensive professional skills and diverse academic backgrounds to work effectively with students and staff to support academic work at UNSW.
