Get help with your assignments
If you need help with studying, writing, or understanding your assignment, you’re not alone! That’s why we’ve developed plenty of resources on Learn HQ.
Our learning advisers are there to help you with your assignments. They offer one-on-one consultations where you can get advice on academic writing, academic English and study skills. You can even submit your draft writing online for feedback.
Academic Integrity is central to building trust and confidence in the University and its community. Find out more about how to practise academic integrity in your units and be aware of what happens when this is breached. We advise checking the site regularly to refresh your understanding of academic integrity and ensure you continue to use best practice when studying and completing assessments.
For commencing students
At Monash, we take academic integrity very seriously, so we’ve produced an Academic Integrity Module to make sure that you understand why it’s important. The module will show you how to conduct your university studies in an ethical manner and inform you of your responsibilities. It needs to be completed by the first few weeks of your first teaching period.
How to complete the Academic Integrity Module
The Academic Integrity Module is compulsory for students who are beginning their studies at Monash. If you’re not sure whether you need to complete this module, check in the Web Enrolment System (WES) on the Enrolment Summary screen (your compulsory modules will be listed in the Status column).
Access the module
After you’ve completed the Academic Integrity module, you’ll:
- understand what academic integrity is, including the difference between plagiarism and collusion
- know why it’s important to you, the University, and the community
- be able to deal with common situations that arise in relation to academic integrity
- know where to find resources to help you improve your academic integrity knowledge and skills.
Working in teams
Here at Monash, we encourage working in teams so that you’re prepared for the collaboration. Teamwork provides an opportunity to build your interpersonal and communication skills which are highly sought after by employers. Sometimes teamwork can be more challenging when we are studying online. To learn more about how to successfully navigate teamwork while learning online, take a look at these sections from Learn HQ:

You can view your exam timetable in WES or through my.monash (just click on the Exam timetable tile). It’ll be available about six weeks before the start of the exam period.
Once classes are finished for a teaching period, you’ll be given time to study before the exam period starts (this is called swot vac).
We have a number of resources to help you prepare for your exams, including for eExams. It can be a stressful time so it’s important to take study breaks and look after yourself. See reducing stress and anxiety during exams for tips and resources.
Special consideration and extensions
If you think you need an extension for an assessment item because of some exceptional circumstances beyond your control, you may be eligible to apply for special consideration.
You might be able to request a short extension from your faculty, but you’ll need to get in touch with your unit coordinator or Chief Examiner for advice (you can find contact details in Moodle).
