Study support

Enhanced Mentor Services

From the start of Trimester 3, you can access more support services and student assistance at the Werribee Learning Centre. Learning Centre Mentors will be the first point of contact for academic support, such as assistance with writing and maths queries, plus study advice and referral to other services.

These special mentors are successful Deakin students who are experienced writing, maths or unit mentors. They have completed additional training so that they can assist you with a broader range of queries including study planning, problem solving and course related information.

Your Learning Centre Mentors will be available throughout the trimester (except 23 December 2019–10 January 2020) on:

  • Tuesday 12–2pm
  • Wednesday 5–7pm.
