Summary The widening participation agenda means that students will be entering degree courses with increasingly diverse needs, particularly with respect to the academic skills necessary for successful tertiary study in Australia. This paper presents findings from a mixed methods project investigating student experience in their first year with respect to academic skills development, and students' perception of their role in this. Students expressed a need for academic skill requirements and how they would be assessed to be made explicit, and identified a stigma associated with accessing study support services. These findings strengthen the argument for an embedded approach to academic skill development in the first year of tertiary education, particularly given the diverse levels of academic preparedness.
