How can Learning Enhancement help you?


Are you struggling with a study skill such as paraphrasing, referencing correctly, or even just one prickly assignment? Book in a one-to-one and we’ll talk through the best practice at your own pace. These sessions can take place in-person or online. We can also help you to prepare for an assignment, resubmission or exam.

Presentation feedback

Sometimes it can feel nerveracking to present infront of a class or for your lecturer. Practicing in a safe environment will help you to build confidence and get some friendly feedback before you do it for an assessment.

Assessment feedback

Email your written assignment at least 5 days before the due date and we can provide you with some written feedback on how to improve.

Workshop requests

Has something passed you and some of your classmates by? If you know a few students would like some help on a particular issue, then Learning Enhancement can run a pop-up workshop on this study skill topic.

Online study

Improve your academic ability by visiting the Learning Enhancement Canvas page. Materials are added throughout the year, so look out for new lessons. You can also request for mini online courses to be created on specific areas.

Learning Enhancement has helped me a lot to improve my English writing and grammar and made me confident to write my assignment. I would recommend it for students. The service provided is beyond what I expected, you can get feedback on your assignment to improve it or to get help on how to use references, paraphrasing and so on.
