Don’t be shy! Patua te whakamā!

ASCThe term will be over before you know it, and if you could use help with:

  • Exam prep
  • Grammar
  • Report & essay writing
  • Improving your English
  • Time management
  • Oral presentations

check out the Academic Skills Centre (ASC). We can give you feedback on your work, help you unpack a tricky question, or discuss how to optimise your study time.

Shania is a 4th year student at UC studying Human Services and Criminal Justice. In her words, “every time I come, everyone’s really friendly and I don’t feel silly asking anything because they’re always really helpful. I come out of it with confidence because they always give me guidance and the key steps to go from”.
