If you need academic support, advice about planning and time management, help managing your mental and emotional wellbeing, or support with anything else that is preventing you from enjoying your study and reaching your potential, don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re not sure who to ask, start with the student advisor team. The student advisor team love hearing from learners and their whānau. If we can’t help, we’ll connect you with someone who can.
When you have a question about what you’re learning, your facilitator is the best person to ask. Your course facilitator will track your progress within your course, providing guidance and feedback on assessments, helping you to access and understand course materials and answering your course-related questions. They can also refer you to additional resources and services as required. Don’t forget to regularly check your Course Home Page for announcements from your facilitator.
The student advisor team will support you as you progress through your course, helping you to find solutions and stay on track. They can give you advice on study skills and time-management, help you to access resources and services and refer you to specialist support as required. When in doubt about who to contact, reach out to the student advisor team.
You’ll find plenty of resources right here, from resources on academic writing to instructional videos on how to use the eCampus NZ portal. Spend some time exploring these pages and bookmark any you’ll find useful as you study.
Don’t forget that you can access the student support and library services of the institute you enrolled with!
You’ll find contact details for your institute under My Contacts on your learner dashboard. Support services provided by institutes include specialist learning support, counselling, Māori and Pasifika student support, and referrals to community and government agencies. Your facilitator and the student advisor team may also refer you to your institute’s support services as appropriate.
