Learning Lounge


Academic staff in the Learning Lounge offer a free, drop-in service to assist all currently-enrolled students. 

Here you will be able to sit down with academic staff on a one-to-one basis. They will be able to assist you in developing your study skills, teaching you to be an independent learner.  There is no need to make an appointment, just drop in with a hard copy of your draft assignment / question.  

External students: During the semester external students can call (08) 8201 2518 between 11am and 3pm Mon-Fri, to speak with an academic advisor in the Learning Lounge.


The Learning Lounge is now closed for 2017 and will reopen late-January 2018. 


No appointment necessary. Just drop by to speak with an academic advisor.

Please note: The Learning Lounge closes for all Public Holidays. Also, on days with high demand, the Learning Lounge may close early in order to assist the students already inside.
