  • Read effectively and take notes
  • reference, paraphrase and summarise

Check back here in late June for the schedule of One Step Ahead workshops running in early July (before the beginning of Semester 2).

Referencing help

Universities are very careful about acknowledging where information and ideas come from. This means that the use of other people’s ideas in your work needs to be referenced. Different areas of study have specific ways of referencing, all of which require practice and take time to master. Become more proficient and confident by getting the referencing help you need.
