It’s that time in the term when assessments are piling up and due dates are looming. Study is all about juggling and digging deep but it can get overwhelming if you have trouble with a task and can’t work through it on your own. Don’t stress! We have a range of services and resources for times like this.
Keep reading for our top picks for academic and study help.
One of the most frustrating assessments I’ve ever completed was made so because of a research issue. It ended up being as simple to solve as using American spelling to search the database but it certainly taught me to appreciate good research skills!
The CQUni Library offer a bunch of great services and resources to assist with researching online, like this Moodle site and these Library Guides. You can also book an in-person or online session with the Ask a Librarian service.
Academic writing, mathematics, science, and computing
Sometimes the trouble is the format or content of an assessment. If you’re asked to write an essay and you’ve never done so before it can be hard to know where to begin. The Academic Learning Centre (ALC) is here to help.
The ALC provides information, advice and resources to help with academic communication, maths, science, and computing. Visit this Moodle site for workshops, personalised consultations, print and online resources.
Need help after-hours?
Let’s face it, we all study at odd hours when term is busy. It’s great to know that after-hours help is available after 5pm and on Sundays.
YourTutor gives you free, after-hours access to an exclusively trained network of tutors by simply visiting the Support block in Moodle. You can choose to drop off a file 24/7 and collect feedback within 24 hours. Alternatively, the online tutors are available 5pm – midnight, Sunday to Friday.
All of these services will also assist you with referencing but I find the referencing guides on this website super helpful. It’s very important not to plagiarise but you also don’t want to lose silly marks for referencing incorrectly.
There’s so much study help available so don’t despair. Reach out and connect with the wide range of online and on-campus support.
