All Business School students are invited to take advantage of our free individual consultations and group consultations service. You can meet with a learning assistant who has expertise in business studies, literacy, numeracy and statistics, writing, referencing, and researching at university level. 

The Learning Consultations team offers guidance and support in all areas of business study and can help you understand assignment requirements, review your work, and offer advice in how to meet course requirements to the best of your ability. They can also help you with your writing, assignment preparation, case studies, exam preparation, or any specific study-related problem, question or issue. 

How to Book a Consultation 

All consultations are by appointment through our online booking system. They are broadly classified into Literacy, Numeracy or Numeracy/Accounting/Economics/Actuarial/Finance, so be sure to select the type of consultation that will meet your needs. 

Literacy Consultations focus on offering support with general study skills and assessment tasks such as drafting essays and reports, presentations and preparing for exams. 

Numeracy Consultations focus on supporting students who require assistance with assessment tasks that primarily involve mathematics and statistics. 

Numeracy/Accounting focus on supporting students requiring assistance with assignments or questions that combine numeracy and accounting topics. 

To help with booking your consultation, please refer to the following:

 

You’ll need to bring a digital copy or a hard copy of the following: 

  • Your writing or response to a task (at any stage of development) 
  • The assignment question and details or topic you are working on 
  • Past feedback and/or other material you consider relevant to the task 

If you have booked an email or skype consultation, you can help us by emailing the above materials to Learning.Consultations@unsw.edu.au at least one working day (Monday to Friday) prior to your appointment.

Face-to-face consultations are held next door to the Business School Student Centre, in Quad 1035 (Map reference E15). Please arrive at least 5 minutes early to find the room and meet your learning assistant before your consultation time starts. Use the intercom to contact the consult room, X 56397, so we can let you in. 

  1. Decide which type of consult you require: literacy, numeracy, or numeracy/accounting. Be sure to book the appropriate assistant/advisor. 
  2. Be mindful that once you have made a booking, that time slot is no longer available to other students. If you need to cancel your appointment, be sure to do so at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. This ensures the consult time is not wasted and other students don’t miss out. 

Note: Business School students can book up to 4 consultations every term.
