Study Help PALS

Need some study help? Ask the Study Help PALS!

Study Help PALS are current UniSA students who provide friendly, informal study support at 'drop-in' sessions on each campus during Study Period 2 and 5. Working closely with the Learning Advisors, Study Help PALS are trained to support you!

Study Help PALS can assist you with:

  • Referencing
  • Academic and assignment writing
  • Study skills


In March 2019, the Study Help PALS took over the University of South Australia Instagram to answer your questions in the lead up to SP2 Census Date and assessment deadlines.

But, the answers to what you asked are relevant and helpful all-year-round, so we've added them to our website for good.

Take a look at what your fellow students were asking here – and click through on each of them to read more and view a whole heap of resources!

Want to help other students? Become a Study Help PAL!
