Our services

The National Centre for Teaching and Learning provides a wide range of support services and learning resources to help enhance your academic skills and success whatever your level of study. We strongly encourage you to explore the following range of services and resources we offer.

Academic Q&A

If you have a quick question about study skills or academic writing, then you can ask it on the Academic Q&A forum.  


One-to-one and group consultations with learning and writing consultants are available online and on campus.   Consultants can answer your questions about academic writing and study skills or give you feedback on your assignment’s structure, focus, paragraph structure, flow,  presentation, use of sources, and referencing. There’s plenty of availability. Please fill out the booking form to book an appointment online (via Zoom ) or on campus. Or drop in at Auckland or Manawatū libraries during semesters 1 and 2. Please note: On campus appointments and drop ins are not available at Covid alert levels 2, 3, or 4.
