Study support and advice
When you're a student at Charles Sturt University, we'll take care of you.
We don't just roll out the support if you're in trouble. Support is part of your everyday experience as a student. We support you now, so you won't find yourself in a pickle tomorrow. It's pretty simple. We'll introduce you to our academic and social support services early, and encourage you to use them often.
Build your study skills
Our Study Link program helps you brush up your skills or fill in any knowledge gaps in a particular subject area. Study Link subjects are short, online and self-paced, so you can tackle them at any time. Best of all, if you're a Commonwealth supported student enrolled in one of our courses, Study Link is free.
Get study help and advice, every day of the week
You'll be in good hands with our learning advisers, who are available daily until 7pm. You can reach them in person, or by phone, email, Skype or online chat. Learning advisers have academic and teaching backgrounds, and specialise in specific subject areas as well as literacy, numeracy and English language.
Here's what they can help you with:
- answer small queries with their quick question call back service
- arrange individual appointments to work on study planning and technique
- give feedback on assignments
- provide online and face-to-face workshops
- provide you with access to study guides and tips.
No question is too small – or big. You can ask detailed questions about your course, or general questions about how to get the most out of your Charles Sturt experience.
Meet your new study partner: the library. You and the library will become close friends by the time you graduate. When you study with us you'll have access to a wide range of online specialist resources – even ones that are unique to Charles Sturt's collection – that you can access anytime, anywhere.
Explore thousands of digital and physical resources to get the most out of your degree. You'll have 24/7 access to our library of eBooks, eJournals, encyclopaedias, multimedia resources and course readings through Primo Search. Hone your research skills through online library workshops and access library resource guides and video tutorials, journals and lots more.
If you're studying online, you can request library resources for home delivery – free of charge! If you live interstate, we'll even send your resources by express post to make sure they get there on time. Return postage is on us, too.
If you're on or near one of our main campuses at Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange, Port Macquarie or Wagga Wagga, drop in to the library to experience the ultimate study zone. You'll have access to our extensive range of tailored educational tools to assist you with finding quality academic resources. Our friendly library staff are always happy to help in person or by telephone, email or live chat.
