Welcome to the website of The Learning Centre at UNSW Australia

The Learning Centre offers academic skills support to all students enrolled at UNSW. The website allows us to extend our services and resources to the wider academic community.

On this site you will find information about The Learning Centre and our services and courses.  These include individual writing consultations, academic skills workshops and conversation groups, a resource library and our online academic skills resources.

If you are a commencing student, or considering studying at UNSW, visit First Steps, a Beginner’s Guide to University Study – a great online resource. We also have services and workshops designed specifically for postgraduate research students and postgraduate coursework students.

We invite students and staff concerned about plagiarism to visit our plagiarism and academic integrity resources.

UNSW staff who would like to know how The Learning Centre can assist their students to develop their academic skills can find examples of how Learning Centre staff work collaboratively with colleagues in Schools and Faculties.  You can also find out about our staff and some of the Centre's projects and activities.

We invite you to visit us in our offices either at the Chancellery at UNSW Kensington or at the Faculty of Art & Design.
