About Academic Skills

We're here to help you grow and refine the skills you need to succeed at the University of Melbourne.

This short video highlights the services and resources that will help you thrive during your time at the University of Melbourne.

Realise your full potential with Academic Skills

Developing your study and communication skills (for example critical evaluation, time management and collaboration) will set you up to succeed in your next assignment, semester, further study, and your career outside of university.

Academic Skills provides a range of resources and services to help you identify which skills you might need to work on, and choose a strategy or approach that works for you.

We help you develop the skills you need to meet current academic needs (e.g. completing that assignment) and future professional needs through online resources, on-campus workshops, and one-on-one consultations with our Academic Skills Advisers or Peer Writing Mentors.
