The essential steps for working with undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students are below. Our focus is on working with lecturer feedback.How we work with UG & PG coursework students

Learning advisors may be able to work with you on your assignment once it has been submitted and marked by your lecturer. 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 work. Students may have approximately two appointments per semester.

Get feedback on your work before you have to submit it for marking. Log in to Canvas – open any course and 'Get study help now (Studiosity)' is in the left-hand menu.
Use Draft Coach to check your referencing, quoting, and paraphrasing before you submit your work:
  • Install Draft Coach in the Microsoft 365 version of Word
  • Read the Similarity Report to check your originality
  • Make improvements to your work
