The Academic Success team works with students throughout their entire University journey. Starting in schools, Academic Success works to build awareness and aspiration for university study. We deliver a range of assessment, pathway and enabling programs to facilitate equitable access to CSU and to prepare students for their studies.
Our expert staff work with Faculty and directly with students to help them develop the CSU graduate attributes in literacy, numeracy and lifelong learning. We provide an extensive academic support program for Indigenous students and we also help students plan for their careers and find a job. Our services are free of charge to all enrolled CSU students and are accessible in person and online.
The ALLaN Team helps students develop their academic literacy and numeracy skills. Students can submit assignment drafts for feedback, book an individual appointment or attend a workshop. The ALLaN team works with Faculty to embed academic literacy skills into the curriculum and can design bespoke programs according to the specific needs of students.
