Learning Support and the School of Economics, UNSW Business School offer a variety of services and resources to help students with mathematical and statistical knowledge. These include:
PASS offers free, weekly, out-of-class study sessions to all Undergraduate and Postgraduate students enrolled in a targeted course. Learn more about the Peer Assisted Support Scheme (PASS).
Individual consultations with a maths/stats advisor – a qualified Mathematics/Statistics advisor is available to assist you with specific issues or concerns.
The Economics PitStop program operates in the weeks leading up to the main exam period, providing additional tutor assistance to students in the larger economics courses. The service is particularly convenient if assistance is required outside their lecturer’s specific consultation times.
All lecturers offer three dedicated student consultation hours each week throughout session - students should refer to their course outline for times and details. Information on PitStop locations will be available closer to the end of each semester and also on the relevant course Moodle sites.
