Study groups — online

Boost your academic performance by joining a study group of students studying the same unit and course or within the same faculty as you. Study groups discuss and work through concepts, ideas and any confusion or problems with course material. Regular study group attendees often achieve better results.

Study Groups are delivered via Collaborate Ultra from the Study Groups Canvas Course. Students in the relevant units of study can access the link to their Study Group from their unit's Canvas site.

Study groups can also be self-organised or run by your faculty. If you need help, the Study Group Coordinator (contact details below) can provide some resources to assist you in setting up a study group, or you can find one yourself.

Student Learning Assistants (SLAs)

If you visit the Learning and Academic Skills (LAS) drop-in centre for academic support, you have the option of working with a Student Learning Assistant (SLA) if you wish. 

The LAS Centre trains SLAs to provide you with high-quality academic skills development. It's a good option if you would prefer to work with a fellow student rather than a senior learning adviser. 

Note: The Student Learning Assistant program is currently not available due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Want to become a Student Learning Assistant?

Student Learning Assistants provide an important service to other students at Swinburne. As an SLA you’ll gain the opportunity to develop your own skills that will help you stand out to future employers. 

Note: The Student Learning Assistants program is currently not running due to COVID-19 restrictions. Registrations for 2021 will open later this year.

Want to speak with a student mentor?

There’s a lot to adjust to when you start university. Like the majority of other students, it’s probably your first time away from home, your friends and your support network. It can all seem overwhelming and daunting at first, but our student mentoring services will help you settle into life at Swinburne.
