Language and Learning Support

Our Language and Learning Support is free and confidential, assisting you with skills development and tailored to your specific unit. We work with students and lecturers to understand the requirements of varied assignments and further study skills.

Our services

Make an appointment (individual support)

When you need help with any aspect of your study, Language and Learning Support Advisors are available for individual consultations.

You need to make an appointment.  Book an in-person appointment at your closest campus or, if you're an external student, you can arrange an online appointment with an advisor at any of our campuses.

Appointments can be made up to 7 days in advance.

Online tutor

As a CDU student you have access to Tutor.com 24/7 via your Learnline units.

PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions)
Study skills resources

Study skills are essential for your success. We want to help you develop your study skills and make the most of your time at CDU. The Study Skills webpage has guides to help you throughout your studies.

Workshops

Language and Learning workshops focus on the skills that you need to do well at university. Whenever possible, we encourage you to join a live workshop for a rich, interactive learning experience, which includes:

  • discussion with Advisors and other students
  • participation in learning activities 
  • the opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback.

Workshops are held either on campus or online, and they are free to all students at CDU.

Visit our calendar page for this semester's schedule.
