Student Learning Drop In offers individualised service designed to help you develop your academic writing and study skills. This free service is open to all students and is available on the Sandy Bay, Newnham, and Cradle Coast campuses or online. The Student Learning Drop In team is made up of specially trained students who have been successful in their own studies so far. Being students, they have first-hand experience of the academic skills needed to succeed at University. Their role is to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have related to your assignment and provide further guidance if required.
When visiting Student Learning Drop In, the Student Learning Mentors will work with you one-on-one on areas you would like to improve, provide advice and support to develop your skills. During semesters 1 & 2, you can visit Student Learning Drop In either in person or online to seek guidance and support with how to:
- approach an assignment and assignment planning
- structure an essay
- develop an argument
- paraphrase and summarise
- navigate MyLO
- English speaking practice
- and other study related questions
No appointment is necessary, and you can visit as often as you like.
Student Learning Drop In is funded by the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).
I feel very comfortable in the Drop-In space because I don’t feel judged on how much I don’t know and I feel like they know what I am going through.
