The friendly and capable staff in the Student Learning Development team want to help you succeed at Otago. Here’s what students have said about the Student Learning Development services:
"I sought help for an essay and the learning adviser assisted me with the technical aspects of it which included grammar and flow. The feedback was very valuable and after applying this to my essay, I obtained a grade that I was very happy with."
"I was at a point where I was rather desperate to improve my writing style, and the one-on-one service the learning adviser provided was perfect to meet that need. Concepts were well explained and I believe the help I received had a pivotal role in my entry into a Master’s programme."
