Tutoring and academic support

We want you to succeed and get the most out of your degree. To help you with your studies, we’re proud to offer you the following support services:

Student study lounge

The Yulendj Indigenous Engagement Unit provide study lounge facilities for students to connect with each other, Yulendj staff, their tutors and with members of community.

The study lounge contains a fully equipped kitchen overlooking a collaborative space where students can undertake group work, play pool, share information and relax between classes.

The study lounge also provides students with access to free-of-charge printing and photocopying facilities, focus areas to undertake private work and participate in the Indigenous Tutoring Assistance Scheme (ITAS) and is the site of the weekly Thursday lunches subsidised by the Unit.

Tutoring

The Indigenous Academic Enhancement Program (IAEP)  is available to current Indigenous students in the form of two hours of one-on-one or group tutoring per unit, per week. Leading into exams you may receive an extra five hours of tutorial assistance.

Our tutors have studied the units you are studying, to ensure you are receiving tailored support.

Tutoring is a valuable resource and we encourage all students to sign-up for IAEP ; it could mean the difference between a Distinction and a High Distinction!

Complete and return the student registration form to request a tutor.

Register as a tutor

If you are interested in tutoring Indigenous students please complete the tutor registration form and return it to the Yulendj at 10 Ancora Imparo Way, Clayton campus, or email it to erin.pennett@monash.edu

Textbook Subsidy Scheme

Monash University is proud to subsidise all of our student's prescribed texts as well as other essentials that may be required to complete specific units, like lab coats and stethoscopes.

To access this funding, please send a full list of all required textbooks and prescribed essentials to Angela Estcourt at angela.estcourt@monash.edu and she will assist you.

Other support

We can organise study skills sessions in areas like academic writing, using the library and preparing for exams and can arrange for emergency relief funds for those that require additional assistance throughout the semester.

Our Elder in Residence, Aunty Diane Singh, provides support to students wanting to make connections with the local community, or wanting to find out more about their own family history and connections.

You can contact Aunty Diane at diane.singh@monash.edu or 9905 4204.
