Meet with an Academic Support & Development lecturer

For personalised help, one-to-one consultations are available for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

You can arrange to see an Academic Support & Development lecturer for 30-60 minutes, to help you with your studies. They won't do the work for you, but can answer questions and help improve your skills.

Make a booking

Book an appointment using the following steps:

  1. Log in to the MYVU Portal.
  2. Select a campus.
  3. Select which area you need advice or support with (maths or writing).
  4. Select the academic you would like to meet with.
  5. Select a suitable time.

You will receive an email confirming your appointment. We will also send you a reminder on the day of your appointment.

If you have trouble using the appointment booking system, please phone +61 3 9919 4744 to make your appointment.

What to bring to your appointment

Bring anything that might help the lecturer understand your assignment or topic, including:

  • the assignment question (if relevant)
  • task instructions
  • assessment criteria
  • a draft of your writing (preferably in hard copy)
  • relevant handouts or even textbooks.

Postgraduate bookings

Postgraduate students wishing to improve their writing skills can bring in and discuss their research writing, such as proposals, literature reviews, research articles, thesis chapters etc.

It is best to access these sessions well before you need to submit your writing. Please note that the lecturer you see will not be able to edit your work, but can help you to develop your own writing and editing skills.

Appointments are available:

  • Mondays at Footscray Park Campus
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays at City Flinders Campus
  • Tuesdays at St Albans Campus.
