Study Support

Fremantle and Broome Campuses

The Notre Dame Study Centre is dedicated to helping you achieve the best possible study outcomes.

We provide you with opportunities to accelerate your learning and help you achieve your goals and aspirations.

A range of study support programs are available for new and current students:

  • Drop-in support

    A Learning Advisor is available between 10am to 2 pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout semester to help with study planning, time management, academic writing, essay structure and more.

    Look for the banner near the help desk in St Teresa’s Library on the Fremantle Campus. No appointment necessary – just drop-in!

  • Academic integrity program

    Academic integrity is the cornerstone of university studies.

    Students are at university to learn from people who have been thinking about their subjects in great depth and, often, for a very long time.

    The University acknowledges that expertise through the use of scholarly sources and citations. This is in many ways the most unfamiliar aspect of life at university and the Academic Integrity Program is designed to apprise students of the appropriate conventions.

    Notre Dame is committed to excellence in teaching, scholarship and research. Fundamental to this commitment is the upholding of academic integrity which is underpinned by the values of honesty, fairness, respect and responsibility. The University has implemented a range of strategies to support and enhance student academic integrity.

    Academic Integrity Basics, Part 1 of AIM, introduces students to the basics of ethical scholarship and the expectations of correct academic conduct at Notre Dame:

    • 1.1 Understanding academic integrity
    • 1.2 Practise ethical scholarship
    • 1.3 Respect intellectual property

    In addition to the Policy: Student Academic Integrity, there is the Code of Conduct for Students, Unit Outlines, Marking Guides (for example, rubrics), Text-Matching Software, Library Services, the Academic Enabling and Support Centre, and this Academic Integrity Module (AIM).

    If you are identified as having an inadequate understanding of academic integrity (through breaches of academic integrity in your assignments) you might be referred to the Notre Dame Study Centre to complete the self-paced Academic Integrity Workbook. This takes approximately eight hours.
