The transition into higher education can be challenging for new learners, with many students navigating new disciplines and encountering unfamiliar academic practices. There is no one method for successful study, and students take diverse approaches to their university learning. The Study Hacks postcard project sought to capture the individual study methods and learning approaches used by students. Students were invited to make short, postcard-sized messages that communicated their own study advice and strategies for peers. These postcards were displayed at multiple sites, on campus and online, and were incorporated into support for learning workshops at QUT Library. Students partnered with staff in the project design, implementation and dissemination of findings.
