Academic Support

The Learning Centre is able to assist you to unlock your potential and maximise your academic success by providing advice and assistance with all aspects of studying at university.

You can explore our Online Workbooks on learning strategies (such as note-taking, effective reading, exam tactics and more) and learn more about academic writing, maths and basic statistics.

Check out Getting Started for weekly and semester study planners to help you manage your time and commitments while you study. There is also a link to the JCU Academic Calendars so you can keep track of important dates such as study dates, census dates, payment due dates, last date to withdraw without academic penalty and exam dates.

There is an Online Contact Form to put you in touch with a Learning Advisor for remote assistance and advice. Make sure you select which study centre you are studying from, or select ‘external student’, and provide as much detail in your enquiry as possible so that staff can tailor their response to your specific needs.

Another great initiative for first year students is Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS), a free academic support program covering a range of first level subjects, some of which are offered online for external students.
