Why learn alone?

Meet with like-minded peers and discuss academic and study skills in small groups.

Uni Study and Writing Readiness Program

During the first week of mid-session break, The Writing Centre is launching its first ever “Uni Study and Writing Readiness Program”. In this free full-day, faculty-specific writing workshop, you will

  • Learn about writing assignments that are common in your faculty and develop strategies to complete them
  • Discuss academic culture in Australia and your faculty
  • Hear from peer leaders and mentors about support services and societies at MQ
  • Meet other students new to MQ during (free!) lunch and meet-and-greet sessions.

This is a great opportunity to meet new people and get useful information about how to succeed in your degree here at Macquarie. You can register for the session using this link: https://forms.office.com/r/ypTbDKUPzf

We hope to see you there!

Returning to Learning

Are you returning to study after some time away? Worried about being prepared, knowing what is expected and dusting off some study skills?

Meet at Learning Connect, Tuesday 10:30-11:30am, 18 Wally’s walk and from there we will move to Wally’s café and a $5 coffee card on us (while stocks last).
