Learning support in mathematics and statistics has arisen and developed in response to student needs in many universities. After discussing background to such support, this article gives a brief overview of learning support in mathematics and statistics in Australian universities as found in an Australian Learning and Teaching Council project and of the provision in Queensland University of Technology. Qualitative and quantitative data on student usage and student progression are discussed. Analysis of data for students studying mathematics and statistics contributes to growing evidence that such learning support is fulfilling needs across the range of student capabilities, including students choosing mathematics degree programs. The article closes with discussion of the contribution of learning support in the spectrum of learning in mathematics and statistics.
