Study Success at Carrington

Students in a tutorial at Carrington CollegeTutorials at Carrington College

Part of the Carrington’ package’ is to encourage intellectual and personal independence as you adjust to tertiary study.

We do this by pitching academic support in such a way to provide accurate information, a range of choices and resources to assist learning in a competitive tertiary University environment….including

  • We have our Deputy Warden and an Academic House Tutor as dedicated support people for all academic matters.
  • Assisting with the transition to University and “readiness”.
  • Running a robust ‘in-house’ learning support programme for many 100 level papers to ‘add value’ to understanding and confidence levels.
  • Fostering informal mentoring between residents
  • Facilitating one-on-one academic assistance if requested
  • Having spacious well-equipped study rooms and a dedicated study centre on site.
  • Offering information sessions on academic courses and work management.
  • Supporting ‘impaired students’ to manage academic requirements during semesters or over exam periods.
  • Tapping into University support services
  • Providing scholarships to recognize academic achievements
  • A House Tutor Team with subject expertise, providing first-hand knowledge about managing university study.

The other side of the equation…residents need a good measure of self-discipline, hard graft, and organizational skills. They should be ready to find out about the various help services available and work out what best suits their style.
