Other Western services
As a Western student there are many other study services available to help you on your learning journey:
Academic literacy workshops
Academic literacy and grammar workshops can help you develop essential academic writing, essay writing and referencing skills. The workshops are run pre-session and during the intra-session breaks.
The workshops are good for new and returning students wanting to update or refresh their skills. Workshops may be especially helpful if you’ve had a break from study, want to check the expectations of academic study, or if you haven’t studied in Australia before.

MESH - Mathematics Education Support Hub
MESH provides students at all stages in their courses of study with mathematics, statistics and numeracy support.
It enables you to:
- revise or ‘brush-up’ on your basic maths skills
- understand and use the maths needed for your studies
- gain stats skills
Drop-in help is available during semester at campus libraries in the Study Smart Zone. MESH runs refresher workshops before and during semester. You can post a question online to the “I Don’t Get It” service.
