What happens in a consultation View
During a consultation, your adviser will ask you about any specific study-related issues you’re experiencing. They’ll share useful strategies that you can apply to your studies, or refer you to resources and workshops that will help.
Advisers may also be able to provide you with initial feedback on your draft assessment responses or book in another time to do that. They may suggest a further consultation or you can request another one.
What you'll need for your consultation View
Bring what’s needed to help your adviser get a good picture of the study issue you’re facing. If you want to discuss an assessment, bring the draft you’re working on and any associated assessment guidelines or marking rubrics.
Drafts are easier to revise than finished assessments, so bringing a draft means we can provide you with much more help.
Be ready to share the assessment question and your unit Moodle page.
What to do after a consultation View
After your consultation, think about:
- what you discussed
- what specific actions were suggested
- what steps can you take in response to the advice you received
- whether you need to book another session and what you should do to prepare for it.
Check your Monash email account for a follow up email from your adviser. This may contain a summary of the discussion you had, useful resources and links to make appointments in the future.
