Academic Skills Centre | Pokapū Pūkenga Ako

The Academic Skills Centre (ASC) is a free advisory service and resource hub that focuses on writing and study strategies to maximise student achievement at all levels from first year through to PhD.

We offer individual consultations with a learning advisor to discuss a specific assignment, as well as workshops, seminars, lectures, and online resources on critical thinking and writing in the university context—everything from the correct use of semi-colons to creating a citations list, to subject-specific styles of discourse.
