Academic skills help

We all want to succeed in life and study. Sometimes, students need a helping hand to make that a reality. At Charles Sturt University, you get access to free study support services as part of your enrolment.

Once you enrol at Charles Sturt, you'll have access to over 80 pages of academic and learning skills support. We offer:

  • self-paced learning
  • interactive workshops
  • one-on-one training and online courses
  • and we can also give you feedback on the writing in your draft assignments.

The skills you learn at Charles Sturt will help you in various courses throughout your academic career and, believe it or not, your everyday life too.

Work with us, and you'll be getting the most out of the precious time you put into finishing your degree!
