As a CSU student, we provide you with access to academic learning support and skill development. Whether it's support in mathematics, English, exam techniques, essay writing or learning strategies, we can help you to acquire or enhance the skills you need to succeed in university studies.
Through workshops, drop-in sessions or individual consultations, students are presented with strategies and techniques that allow them to better participate in academic activities.
Study support services include:
Whether you're embarking on university study for the first time or just want to refresh your skills, CSU's online resources are accessible anywhere, any time.
As a CSU student, you have access to Learning Skills Advisors who can provide you with academic learning support. These consultations are free and can be in person or online. Learning Skills Advisors assist you to develop skills in structuring assignments correctly and to develop your own study and editing skills, but do not offer a proof reading or editing service or advice on content.
Whether you have accepted an offer to study at CSU or another university, or are considering university study in the near future, a STUDY LINK subject may help you prepare for university study. STUDY LINK offers short, self-paced subjects available to study by distance education. We provide you with the materials (usually online) which you work through at your own pace.
From Writing at University to Introduction to Physics, the range of STUDY LINK subjects provides an insight into university study.
Our students report huge gains in confidence, skills and knowledge as a result of completing STUDY LINK subjects and we constantly seek feedback to ensure the STUDY LINK program continues to meet student needs.
