Students commencing at LCI Melbourne or returning after a leave of absence are given a comprehensive orientation, covering topics from time management to academic policies and procedures, as well as introducing key LCI Melbourne administrative and academic staff. These sessions provide a solid introduction to the expectations, responsibilities and opportunities associated with higher education, assisting students to make best use of their time at LCI Melbourne.
LCI Melbourne regularly runs a range of free workshops to help students make the most of the learning experience. These include a range of practical and experimental creative workshops as well as academic ones focussed on: Time Management, Language for Academic Purposes and Jumpstart (resume writing).
The Language and Study Skills Unit (LASSU) is a six unit program focusing on skills for higher education students such as essay writing, referencing, avoiding plagiarism and academic presentations.
LCI Melbourne provides students with free one-on-one assistance in academic literacy and essay writing. This service is available to students on demand, or by referral from tutors, as the semester progresses.
LCI Melbourne runs a structuring Mentoring Program that pairs first year students experiencing academic or social challenges with more experienced students who can offer support.
Throughout every study period LCI Melbourne continuously monitors students’ academic progress. This helps us to identify students who may be experiencing problems as soon as possible. LCI Melbourne’s Academic Progress Committee can then offer appropriate guidance and support.
Students who do not successfully complete one or more units will be asked to attend a personal meeting with a representative of the Academic Progress Committee to discuss the options for the student’s future study load and strategies to avoid further unsatisfactory performance.
In the spirit of reconciliation LCI Melbourne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community.
LCI Melbourne pay respects to the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people and acknowledges them as the Traditional Owners of the land on which our campus is situated. We recognise this as a place of special significance for the Indigenous community.
We pay our respect to Elders past and present and future. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded.
