Academic Support

There are multiple ways to receive academic support at ANU. This can mean going to the Academic Skills and Learning Centre, registering for an Education Access Plan if you have a disability, or even dropping a course.
These pages explain the different processes and how they may be useful to you, especially if you have experienced trauma resulting from sexual violence.

More broadly, if you are struggling with your coursework or academic skills, you can visit the Academic Skills and Learning Centre. The centre can assist you with assignments, and help you to develop study techniques and broader communication skills relating to academia. Their services are available to anyone studying at ANU.

They can offer:

  • Individual 45 minute appointments that must be pre-booked. They can give you personalised assistance for your writing, research or study skills. They can not directly edit or proofread your work, or advise you on the academic content of your writing. The appointments are usually on Level 2 of the John Yencken building with no lift available. However, if you need, you can book appointments on the ground floor by calling or emailing the centre.
  • Drop-In Sessions: This service is available from 11-1pm on weekdays during the semester. They are usually held on the ground floor of Chifley Library and there are lifts available in the case of venue changes.

These services are exclusive to issues and situations relating to academic assistance, assignments, course-work and study skills. You can expect assistance and support with planning and editing your assignments and coursework, and developing communication skills and study techniques that can assist you throughout your degree.
