Learning support

You should always feel empowered to reach out and ask for help with your studies.

Whether it’s from your tutor, course coordinator, peers or online resources, there is an abundance of support in place to help you achieve your goals.

It doesn’t need to be course-specific either – while there is tutoring and study sessions available for individual subjects, there is also assistance with study, research and presentation skills.

Study skills and resources


The University's libraries are an invaluable resource for your studies and we want you to make the most of them.

The libraries have orientation services to make sure you know your way around – both at their physical locations and online – as well as research guides, online tutorials and referencing sources.

You can even Book a Librarian or speak face-to-face with a Librarian online for personalised help.

Pathways and Academic Learning Support Centre

The Academic Learning Support team provides advice and support on essay writing, preparing for exams, and English and Maths skills.

Learning Support also hosts a range of workshops and courses, and provides Learning Advisors to offer more individualised assistance.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
