Higher Education:

Student Support.

At ACOM we aim to provide students with all the support they need to excel in their academic endeavors. We want to celebrate your success and so we want to support you in every way that we can. This section of our website is designed to be a regular source of assistance throughout your entire academic journey.

It is here that you will find assistance with study and writing skills, guides to prepare and complete research projects and other resources such as book reviews. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with what is available in each of our sections below and keep checking the page regularly as we hope to be adding new resources to assist every aspect of your ACOM studies.

Before you start why not watch this short welcome video from our Dean of Students, Neale Meredith:

General Student Support

In this section you will find general information to help you get a great start as a student at ACOM. You will find features such as Student Orientation, New Student check-list and information about Moodle.

Study Skills

Your success as a student at ACOM will be determined by the development of your study skills. In this section of our website you will find assistance in the areas of using journals, ATLAS (online database) and how to develop effective note taking and study skills. 

Writing Skills

Your academic success is not only determined by your thoughts about the topics you are studying but by the way you put those thoughts into the written word. Academic writing is very specific and therefore it is important that you understand the various aspects that are associated with the discipline of theology.

In this section of our website you will find assistance in how to write some of the main types of assessments you will be asked to do at ACOM,  as well as guides to referencing and academic writing. 

Research

Research can be be a daunting prospect, but the important next step for our students. In this section we aim to provide you "step by step" guides to help you learn about the different types of research available to you and how to go about embarking on a research project. You will also find examples of Research by ACOM staff and students.

Book Reviews

This section contains a number of book reviews on various books from the disciplines of study at ACOM.
