You don’t have to be on campus to access study help. Many of the Library’s services can be accessed online – wherever you may be! Here’s a handy list of study support services available to you:

Peer Academic Mentors

Peer Academic Mentors are high-achieving Curtin students who can help with:

  • Time management
  • Preparing for exams
  • Assignment planning and structure
  • Referencing
  • Course or faculty specific content
  • Maths and statistics
  • Using OASIS and Blackboard
  • Searching for reputable sources.

Face-to-face sessions are available weekdays on level 4 of TL Robertson Library, or you can book an online session too. Visit the Peer Academic Mentor page to meet the mentors, book a session and check out the weekly timetable.


If you’re studying a first-year unit and want in-depth feedback on an assignment, check out Studiosity. It’s an online service that can be accessed 24/7 with two services on offer:

  • Writing Feedback gives you constructive, confidential writing feedback. Simply upload an assignment draft, and you’ll receive comments, suggestions and encouragement from a Studiosity tutor within 24 hours.
  • Connect Live offers one-to-one, personalised help in real-time. Friendly tutors can help you with your tricky study questions on maths, science, statistics, English, assignments and more.

You can access Studiosity through Blackboard within first-year units. Look for the Studiosity link in the unit menu.


If you haven’t checked out UniSkills yet, you really should! This website has been designed to help you improve your academic and study skills. There are modules on how to tackle assignments and study tips, as well as numeracy and digital skills. Want to learn how to use EndNote? There are modules for that too! It’s a great tool for checking referencing when working on assignments.


The Library runs many different workshops throughout the semester. Most of these run online so you can join in from the comfort of home. Workshops cover a variety of topics including EndNote, referencing, research, writing and study skills. Check out the upcoming workshops calendar for more information.
