APU Learning Development Centre provides several strategies in developing and preparing students to optimize their potential throughout their education journey. Early interventions will be provided to poor-performing students who are weak at entry points and to those unable to cope with the studies at some points. An initial diagnostics measure is conducted as a form of formative assessment relevant to the discipline to identify the students. The centre will organize Remedial Program for a couple of weeks to ensure these students raised their knowledge to an acceptable level as others so they will be able to get to the mainstream. For the students that have difficulties during the semester, Refinery Treatment Program, a Peer Tutoring intervention is introduced to them. The program is conducted with the assistance of performing students with a faculty member as the facilitator. Both strategies are aimed at students to acquired adequate knowledge or skills at the completion of the course. 

The centre strategized to assists students who taking referral assessments. The referral assessments add additional load to the students that already have to cope with the studies and assessment of new semester/level courses. They may not have adequate time or resources to revise for referral on their own. This can possibly lead to cumulative failures. The centre provides revision classes with a dedicated faculty member to provide guidance to these students. 

The centre has a strategy to assists students with accumulated failures that potentially stop them from continuing their studies. Dedicated Student Welfare Officer (Academic) will consult the students and plan a detailed schedule to recover the failed course timely with the assistance of relevant faculty members. This initiative will ensure students complete their studies.

The e-Learning experience at APU is seamless; with only 1 set of credentials (known as APKey @ APU), students are open to access a variety of online resources & virtual systems.
