Learning support

Academic Skills Centre

The Academic Skills Centre (ASC) can help you effectively transition into university study and equip you with the necessary skills to become a successful student and lifelong learner.

Who are we?

The ASC is staffed by a group of highly qualified, skilled, experienced and friendly Learning Advisers who can help with your studies.

What do we do?

As staff of the Academic Skills Centre, we can:

  • assist you with tackling assessment tasks (at Assignment Drop in Sessions);
  • help you to develop your English language (through English Language Workshops);
  • deliver academic skills training workshops in the areas of academic literacy, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (through Academic Skills Workshops); and
  • collaborate with your lecturer to make tacit assignment instructions accessible to you (within your lectures/tutorials and/or on your unit Blackboard sites).

HDR Skills Centre

The HDR Communication Advisers provide a range of advice to research students across ECU in workshops and individual consultations. They can also work with supervisors to develop HDR communications skills through discipline-based workshops or in designated School HDR programs, Welcomes and Inductions. HDR Communication Advisers also develop self-access online resources to enhance HDR students’ communication skills. HDR candidates can find these on the HDR Skills Centre site on Blackboard. (See My Communities; on admission to ECU, all HDR students are automatically given access to the HDR Skills Centre).

HDR Communication Advisers work alongside the Graduate Research School, collaborating closely with Research Consultants and SOAR Ambassadors, to provide an integrated support service for research students. The Graduate Research School can be contacted on SOAR Ambassadors can be contacted on
