Study support

Help with learning

Sometimes you may need help with a particular subject or skill.

Perhaps maths isn't your strong point, or you find it hard to express ideas in writing for essays or exam answers. If you need help like this, we can offer you tutorials and other forms of learner support.

Learner support may help you with:

  • literacy
  • numeracy
  • English as a second language
  • maths
  • science
  • computing skills
  • communication skills

Depending on your needs, we offer learner support:

  • at drop-in centres
  • in small groups
  • with a team teacher
  • as one-to-one tuition
  • via the internet.

We can provide specialised support if you have a disability, or if English is not your first language.

Submit an online enquiry or call 131 601 to find out what study support services are available at your location.

ReadWrite - Intro

How Read&Write helps you with your studies and work

Read&Write allows you to complete your studies more confidently and more independently, anywhere, anytime, and on any device, on campus, off campus, online or offline.

You can use text to speech to help you to understand coursework materials and to progress through required readings and research much more quickly.

By using the grammar, dictionary, word prediction, and spelling features, Read&Write can help to improve the quality of your written work.

Then, as barriers to writing are broken down, it can increase the volume of work you are able to complete. You can even edit and check your work by listening to it.
