Many students face difficulties when it comes to writing projects, papers, and presentations. The Student Academic Success Service at Antonine University (UA) is the best support for students to succeed. The Vice-Rectorate for Integral Human Development (VRIHD) has introduced this service in 2019 to help students thrive in their studies and build lifelong learning habits.


Who can benefit from this service?
The Student Academic Success Service is a free service available to all UA active students.

What is the purpose behind this service?
This service aims to help students in minimizing their writing difficulties, in developing their academic skills, and in acquiring new strategies that will lead them to present a better-written work.

How does it work?
Offered in our three campuses, this service allows students to meet with the service’s advisers for one-on-one sessions of 30 minutes during which they will be assisted in:

 

  • organizing their ideas (introduction, body, conclusion);
  • understanding the basic notions of grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, subject-verb agreement, among others; and
  • following the citation style requested by the relevant faculty (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.).

However, the advisers neither correct the content nor do they translate the information that the students want to use in their work. Nonetheless, the student can work with the adviser on the same project or paper through several sessions, noting that the places are limited.

Following one-on-one meetings with several students, the advisers collect the common academic difficulties that the students are facing, and organize workshops for groups of students during which they help them overcome these difficulties.

How to book an appointment?
The service is available throughout the academic year and the sessions take place virtually via Microsoft Teams. Book your appointment now to schedule your one-on-one meeting.
