Academic Skills Centre – your very own pit crew

Congratulations, you’ve either just started out at university or have made it through this far. Irrespective, if you’re a little lost and need some help sorting out that assignment, thank your stars, because the Academic Skills Center (ASC) does just that.

Located on both the Ilam and Dovedale campuses Level 3 of the Central Library (James Hight) and on level 1 of the Education Library, ASC provides a free service to everyone enrolled at the University to assist them, through individual consultations. They provide customised feedback on assignments, hold regular workshops, seminars, lectures and give access to a range of online resources that focus on your success at university.

Need help approaching an assignment or need some critical review of it?  Seeking help with context and grammar? Need some tips to manage your time efficiently, or simply a road map to make it through university? The ASC has all the answers for you! Seriously.

Approach them; all you need to do is ask and you will receive help. If used wisely, the ASC can act as your pit crew that will get you through the race of the  “survival of the best” at university.

Fortunately, with them, you’re not on your own.
