Coronavirus (COVID-19): advice and support for the Bond community. Read more

Academic Skills Centre

We understand university study presents new challenges, and we aim to help you reach your academic potential.

The Academic Skills Centre team offers personalised help, with personalised one-on-one sessions, small group workshops, and online resources to improve your skills in:

  • Academic writing
  • Organising and structuring your assignments
  • Time-management and study methods
  • Preparing for exams
  • Oral presentations
  • Referencing and citing
  • English
  • Maths

This service is provided for both domestic and international students at all study levels across all faculties, regardless of your mode of study.

One on one appointments

We can work together with you on any assignments, reports, or oral presentations to help you present your ideas clearly and effectively. We cannot, however, help with content related questions, and you will need to see your tutor for this.

We can also work with you to make sure that you are studying as effectively as possible, help with time management, and be a personal trainer for your academic studies while you are at Bond.

During Covid 19, appointments will be done using Collaborate. We will both be able to see your paper and can work in the same way as a face to face appointment.

The Academic Skills Centre can also help academic staff in areas such as:

  • specific academic skills workshops for classes 
  • blended learning materials to put on subject iLearn sites
  • support for non native speakers of English.

Learning Advisors are available for consultation with supervisors, course coordinators and lecturers to help improve the overall study experience for students.

 

Bookings

Personal consultations are free, and students are allowed one session per week. You can book up to 14 days in advance.

  • Please cancel a booking as soon as possible to enable another student to take your appointment.
