Improve your academic outcomes

mpower logo
Play the M-Power game for a simulated journey through some typical study situations. Will you make the right choices?

Whether you are new to tertiary off-campus learning or whether you're something of a long-distance traveller, it is your approach to learning that will help define your levels of success.

Consider your own approach to studying, learning and assessment. How do you meet academic standards? What process do you use when you are faced with an unfamiliar learning situation like a new type of assignment or a new subject? What do you notice about different disciplines? How do you engage with other perspectives? How do you write your assignments? How can you get a better result?

For a bit of guidance…

Ask for support and guidance for these matters with a learning consultation.
