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 (including "Procrastination and Managing Time"), as well as individual consultations, discipline-specific support programs within some faculties, and both online and print resources for students.

The Learning Centre is located on the Camperdown and Cumberland campuses, and is committed to helping both undergraduate and postgraduate students achieve their academic goals.
