Arc's advocacy and legal staff can help you with academic disputes, administrative problems, harassment or discrimination or dealing with charges of academic misconduct. We can also give legal advice on UNSW intellectual property and scholarship agreements. We know how the university works and we ensure students are properly represented and are aware of their rights and responsibilities, on and off campus.

Student Academic Assistance Program

Arc@Canberra are introducing the Student Academic Assistance Program (SAAP) for the first time to help our undergraduate students receive pre-exam tutorial sessions and one-on-one tutor and tutee help sessions for specific subjects.

The pre-exam tutorial sessions will be of approximately 2hrs in length and will run as drop in tutorials where tutors run through key course content, practice questions, and important tips for the exam. If there is demand, the tutorial sessions can also be held during the semester prior to class tests as well to further assist students academically. Snacks will be provided in tutorial sessions. Postgraduate students are equally welcome to volunteer for the tutoring opportunity.

Students who participate as tutors will receive a certificate and gift at the end of each semester for their efforts, as well as a personal recommendation letter from ARC that will be a great addition to their resume.

We are seeking expressions of interest for tutors and tutees to participate in this program.
