Academic Skills

The University provides a range of free support services to assist you with your studies. Below is some more information about what practical support offered on campus and how to access it.

1. Learning Development

Learning Development is a team of Learning Advisers who provide academic support for all students enrolled at the University of Wollongong, at any stage of their degree. You can book a free consultation to discuss your academic work; attend workshops in academic writing and study, language for international students and maths support and access online study resources.

2. Peer Assisted Study Sessions

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are one hour sessions where students work together to reinforce key concepts and develop effective study strategies. Think "super group" learning! The PASS program is celebrating 11 years on the UOW campus in 2012 and runs on a range of subjects encompassing all faculties across the University of Wollongong. Whether you are a top performer or could use some improvement, you will benefit from the skills and understanding gained from attending PASS. The most obvious result of PASS is that students who attend regularly consistently earn a higher grade and withdraw less often than those who do not attend. PASS is also a great way to network with other students in your course.
