Student Learning Support
Student Learning Support at APIC aims to improve the academic experience for all students by motivating them to do the best work they can and by developing skills for succeeding with academic studies and improving job-readiness. Student Learning Support also provides support with specific learning issues such as paraphrasing, referencing and time management.
Student learning support is delivered in a range of formats, inside and outside the classroom, in-person and online via the APIC Online Learning System (OLS), telephone, Skype and Zoom.
Student Learning Support delivers workshops on a range of topics:
- Academic skills including: searching for information; reading academic texts; academic writing; preparing a literature review; referencing accurately; and exam preparation
- Computer and discipline-specific skills such as: MYOB; SPSS; MS Project; Excel; and data analysis
- Professional skills including: business communication; teamwork; and time management
- Job-readiness skills such as: resume writing; job interviews
Some workshops include industry guest speakers. Register here to attend an academic workshop.
Academic Help Desk
The Academic Help Desk is for individual consultations with APIC Student Learning Support staff on specific study-related issues. Students may drop-in for a 15-minute session or book for an online consultation session (via phone, Skype or Zoom).

Student Learning Support provides immersion support in scheduled classes. Student Learning Support staff attend selected classes and offer support with specific learning activities alongside academic teaching staff. This support includes clarification and supplementation of lecturer’s expositions, assistance with solving tutorial exercises, structuring, referencing and language in completing assignments. In addition to in-class immersion support, students may also arrange continuous after-class support where necessary.
Academic Integrity Module
All APIC students are required to understand APIC’s academic integrity standards and conduct. The Academic Integrity Module provides students with information about their academic integrity responsibilities, the importance of proper academic acknowledgement and referencing, and how to avoid plagiarism and other academic misconduct.
APIC students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module within the first week of their study at APIC. The Module is available through the online learning system.
