Study support and advice
When you study with 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. We'll introduce you to our academic and social support services early, and encourage you to use them often.
Start with integrity
When you begin studying with Charles Sturt, you’ll complete a compulsory online module all about academic integrity. This will help you get to grips with the expectations for uni assignments, the polices and processes around them, and topics like plagiarism. Find out more about what academic integrity looks like for students at Charles Sturt University.
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 during the day, after hours and on weekends for support. 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.
When you study with us you'll have access to a wide range of digital and physical resources to help you get the most out of your studies. You'll have 24/7 access to our collection of eBooks, eJournals and multimedia resources through Primo Search and our extensive range of databases.
Hone your research skills, attend online library workshops, access library resource guides and watch our video tutorials and lots more. If you're studying online, you can request library resources for home delivery – free of charge!
