Study Support Sydney

Academic Support services are provided through the Notre Dame Study Centre and located at Broadway on level 5 in Pioneer House (Building 5 on the university map).  During semester a Learning Advisor is also available at Darlinghurst (days may vary from semester to semester).

Academic Support assists students in two key ways.

  1. Learning advisors work with academics during class time to assist with academic skills in course work in face-to-face mandated formats.
  2. Learning advisors encourage students to self-refer in optional formats outside of class time via Academic Study Skills workshops, various support initiatives and individual appointments.

Academic Support transmit information to students via their Notre Dame email, so it is imperative students check their emails regularly.

Academic Skills workshops are presented in conjunction with the library and are designed to build academic skills and confidence in students. The workshops run for approximately 45 minutes (check the timetable for room details) so students will have time to eat lunch and prepare for their next class. There is no need to book or register you just need to show up!  Workshop attendance is a great way to connect with other students.

Academic Support also provides students with the opportunity to book an individual appointment with a Learning Advisor three times in a semester for assignment assistance. Please email sydney.aso@nd.edu.au to book an appointment.  Ensure you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Mathematics support is School specific and presented during the semester in the School of Nursing, School of Business and in the Tertiary Preparatory Program (TPP).

Please take some time to review some of our online study skill resources:

  • Personal consultations

    You can request a 30 minute appointment with an Academic Support Officer (up to three times per semester) to assist in assignment preparation including assistance with referencing, writing, and research. We can also help with such matters as time management, understanding feedback from assessments, and exam preparation.

    This is a free service available to all students from the University of Notre Dame.

    For more information, or to book an appointment, please email: sydney.aso@nd.edu.au, with your name, student number and request.
