One Step Ahead Academic Skills Workshop

Our One Step Ahead academic skills workshop covers all the basics! Start your year One Step Ahead with the Learning Hub’s crash course in academic skills for uni study. Whether you’re a recent school-leaver, returning to study after a break, or studying in Australia for the first time, this practical online workshop will you give you all the tools you need to make sure you hit the ground running.

You’ll learn how to analyse your first assessment tasks, use evidence in your writing and construct great paragraphs. But get in quick – places for our live online sessions are filling fast!

Meet friendly faces who are here to support you

Our helpful Learning Hub staff will introduce you to a range of services, so you can be confident about where to get support when you need it. You’ll also meet other students and be introduced to our Peer Learning Advisors (or PLAs as they’re known around campus). PLAs are experienced who have been specially trained to help – and they’re available to answer your questions throughout the semester!

What do past students say about One Step Ahead?

“I haven’t studied for 17 years, so this session was perfect as a refresher. I feel less anxious now. Thank you so much”

“Very well presented, loved that there were ample breaks in between each session to rejuvenate our brains”

“Session was great, even online! Pam and Freya were great at answering questions or comments as they popped up and being inclusive”

Why do staff recommend the workshop?

“We always get a great mix of students at One Step Ahead,” says Kate Horan, one of the Learning Hub’s Academic Skills and Language Advisors. “Everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, so it’s a great opportunity for students to learn from others.”
