The Learning Centre provides resources for students to build and extend the skills they need for study and research at university.
The Learning Centre's services include a wide range of workshops throughout the year on academic writing, research and other skills, as well as individual consultations, discipline-specific support programs within some faculties, and both online and print resources for students.
Workshops relevant to higher-degree-research students include:
- Preparing a thesis proposal (3 hrs; 26 March 3-6pm, 16 April 1-4pm)
- Writing a literature review (6 hrs; Sat 22 March 10am-1pm & 2-5pm, Fri 28 March 10am-1pm & 2-5pm, Fri 11 April 10am-1pm & 2-5pm)

The Learning Centre’s mid-year Postgraduate Research Program is on from 16 June to 11 July. Put this in your diary because it will feature back-to-back workshops specifically designed for the needs of postgraduate students.
Other workshops are listed on the Learning Centre's workshops' website, when they become available.
All the centre’s workshops come highly recommended by research students from the faculty who have enrolled previously, and all are free of charge.
