About the learning advisor team
The learning advisor team collaborates with the Graduate Research School to contribute to the writing development of postgraduate research students. We create online and on campus workshops, videos, and webpages, and also connect with supervisors to support individual or small groups of research students.
At AUT, a research student is someone who is currently doing a research project as part of one of the following programmes:
The essential steps for working with you and your research supervisors are below. Our focus is on working with supervisor feedback.
Your supervisor can request an academic writing appointment with a learning advisor. This occurs once your writing has been commented on by supervisors. In accordance with AUT’s proofreading guidelines for student assessments and the guidelines for the proofreading of postgraduate theses and dissertations at AUT, learning advisors do not proofread or check student writing. There is a maximum of two academic writing appointments per student for each semester.
You can book yourself into thesis writing workshops through E Lab. You can make an appointment or book into general workshops on academic writing and presenting. You can also book into many other research workshops in the GRS’s postgraduate seminar series through E Lab.
