How we can help you

PACs are current Murdoch students from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. They are excelling academically themselves, and can help coach you with your studies too.

The PAC team can help you with:

  • getting started at university
  • academic skills (reading, writing, planning, maths, stats and time-management)
  • discipline-based skills and questions
  • navigating the learning management system
  • planning an assignment (e.g. essay, report, etc.)
  • referencing
  • understanding academic integrity and discourse.

Prepare for your consultation

To ensure PACs can best assist you with your questions, please have the following available for your consultation (on a USB is fine):

  • your unit guide
  • a copy of the assignment question
  • a plan of your work (if you have it)
  • your student ID card
  • anything else that might help the PAC (and you) to understand your task or problem better
After your consultation it is useful to think about what you discussed and your next steps forward.
