NCI's Learning Support Tutor, Catherine Elliott, working with a student
Here at the National College of Ireland we believe that each student can have an effective and enjoyable learning experience. Our goal is to support all full-time, part-time and off-campus students in their academic studies. To help achieve this goal, we offer a number of academic support services, as detailed below.
Learning Support Service
The Learning Support Service is centred around some core areas such as academic writing, reading, researching, studying, note-taking, exam revision and in general, a focus on aiding a student in all manners of academic advancement.
The service provides support in the form of our Getting to Grips drop-in service. Available:
- Mondays 4-7pm
- Tuesdays 4-7pm (online)
- Wednesdays 1-3pm
Just drop into the Learning & Teaching space on the ground floor to work with a tutor.

Mathematics Support Service
The Mathematics Support Service is one of a number of services offered by the NCI Student Support Service. The service provides an informal environment for students who are experiencing difficulties or wish to improve their understanding of and confidence in mathematical concepts.
All National College of Ireland students are welcome and encouraged to avail of the services offered by the Mathematical Support Office. In particular, if the student is taking a Business module or Computing module from any of the following:
- Quantitative and Qualitative Methods
- Research Methods
- Discrete Mathematics
The Mathematics Support Service is running dedicated programme workshops. These workshops are a great opportunity for all who attend to reaffirm the concepts previously covered on modules. They are also a great place to ask questions and get advice.
Mathematics Support Service will also be running dedicated Examination Revision sessions over the five weeks before examination start. These sessions will concentrate on those typical past examination questions. These sessions have been really effective and are quite popular with all modules.
You can also request one-on-one sessions with the support tutor.
