One-to-one Academic Support is available to students with significant needs registered with the Service. Every reasonable effort will be made to support students but this support is subject to the availability of tutors in specialist areas. Academic support is not an editing, proofreading or 'quick fix' solution, but aims to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your writing and improve your skills.

Additionally, learning support is available for students with specific learning difficulties through the College Counselling Service. The learning support team offers one-to-one appointments to students that can cover study and organisational strategies, academic writing skills, managing examinations, presentation skills, and other topics related to academic study.
If you would like to make an appointment with one of the learning support psychologists please contact the Counselling Service (the entrance is on campus next to the Health Centre). Alternatively you can call on (01) 896 1407 to make an appointment.
