Improve your academic skills; ‘tUNEup from home’ – next session is 22 January to 2 February 2018; Register Now!

Published On January 9, 2018 | By Luke | Getting Started

The next tUNEup from home course will run from 22 January – 2 February, 2018. A second tUNEup program will be offered from 12 February – 23 February, 2018. This program has proven to be a very effective booster program for students who are beginning university studies OR have been experiencing difficulties with their academic literacy in their study program. Students may enrol as often as they feel the need to improve their skills.  


  1. I have never written academically before, so this has been an excellent resource. Learning how to reference, fine tuning my grammar, how to use Moodle etc. are all brilliant refreshers before I start my first course.

  2. The resources offered are so helpful. The first time I did the tune-up course I had not done any university work. I learned a lot, but I had no way to put it into context. Now I have completed a few units, I can see where my weaknesses are, and this (second go of) tune-up has helped me enormously in seeing where I am challenged and some great ideas about how to address those problems.

The course is free, runs over a period of two weeks and covers aspects of academic writing, study skills and online learning. Specific areas covered in the course include paragraph writing, paraphrasing, referencing, academic writing style, grammar and punctuation. Further details of the course can be found on the ASO website at
