Learning Hubs: study advice & career guidance

Learning Hubs are welcoming, collaborative spaces where you can improve your study skills and receive career guidance.

We offer practical workshops and drop-in sessions to all of our students, as well as after-hours online advice.

Dedicated maths, writing, digital-literacy, library and careers advisers work with us to design our services and resources.

We also have peer mentors - experienced, successful students - here to support your transition into university life, and to pass on their invaluable knowledge and skills.

 

Learning Hub services & resources

Learning Hubs are spaces at Footscray Park, St Albans, City Flinders, Footscray Nicholson and City Queen campuses where you can get advice on your university work and guidance on your career. We offer services and online resources to students at all levels, from first year to postgraduate study.

VU students can come to our drop-in sessions and workshops at any of these hubs, as well as employability workshops at Werribee and Sunshine campuses.

Workshops

Learning Hubs have workshops scheduled weekly for undergraduate and postgraduate students, including:

  • writing
  • maths
  • careers and employability
  • Library and research skills.

Bookings are available through Learning Hub.

Drop-in sessions

Come in to our friendly Learning Hubs between 10am and 6pm Monday to Friday to attend a drop-in session. We offer advice and guidance on:

  • writing
  • maths
  • careers
  • Library research and referencing.

Learning Hub has timetable information.

First Year Model activities & tutorials

If you're part of our First Year Model, you need to participate in one complementary activity per unit of study. These can be booked online through Learning Hub.

You can also get maths and science assistance through our Peer Assisted Tutorials (PATs). PATs are delivered by students who have excelled in their studies and are keen to see other students thrive. PATs do not require students to book in – just check Learning Hub for times and dates.

Book your activities using our app for first-year students, VU LearnHub.

Postgraduate writing circles

Writing a thesis is a major undertaking, and advice can be invaluable.

Writing Circles are scheduled fortnightly to provide a supportive network of peers to guide you through your postgraduate writing.

Check Learning Hub online for timetables and bookings.

You'll find jobs from external organisations, and Student as Staff roles within the University.
