Academic Support

Superior support to ensure you succeed

We have the personalised support services to ensure you have everything you need to succeed at university and beyond.

You can take advantage of free one-on-one academic support provided by peers and academic staff to all students. Book a peer tutoring session with a high-achieving student who has already completed your course and develop your understanding and confidence in the subject.

Our dedicated Academic Skills Advisor is an expert in helping students adapt to university and developing study skills and offers free workshops throughout each semester.

Please see Sydney Campus Reception for more information about support services and to book your free session with one of our experts.

Academic Integrity Module (AIM)

If you are a commencing undergraduate or postgraduate coursework student you will be enrolled in the Academic Integrity Module, and you will be expected to complete it as part of your course requirements. It will provide you with the tools you need to succeed at university.

The module will:

  • guide you through your responsibilities as a student
  • provide examples of correct academic conduct
  • show you where to find useful information and examples of referencing styles specific to your course

If you would like to do the AIM but it is NOT on your Study Plan, you can ask to do it. Just email AIM@latrobe.edu.au and request a password to do the AIM. You will need to provide your student login.

Academic workshops

Academic workshops are held regularly throughout each semester, providing extra support to students in a variety of areas including:
