Learning Supports

UCD Writing Centre

UCD Writing Centre provides free, one-to-one tuition and a range of workshops on all aspects of the writing process. Their mission is to offer free, high-quality tuition in writing to all undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in improving their writing skills. They offer one-to-one tuition and a range of workshops/seminars. Writing tutors are friendly and non-judgemental, and the sessions are student-centred and inquiry-driven. They strive to ensure that students are helped to communicate, structure, and present their knowledge and ideas in a written format, and that their expertise and critical thinking skills are not diminished by either fear of, or difficulties with, aspects of the writing process.

UCD Maths Support Centre

The UCD Maths Support Centre (MSC) aims to enhance your knowledge of mathematics and guide you to becoming a more self-directed learner. Whether you feel totally lost or are perhaps seeking to reach a higher grade then the MSC is the place to come. Most importantly, the MSC is staffed by dedicated and experienced tutors who can offer individual support in Mathematics, Statistics, Applied and Computational Maths (ACM), or any other numerate subject such as Architecture, Economics, Engineering or Nursing where problems can arise due to a lack of mathematical understanding.

UCD Library

The UCD library, composed of five separate bodies, has varied ranges of digital and printed books on a wide range of topics. Students of the School have access to all five of UCD’s library bodies, however, specialist expertise has been developed for the health sciences discipline at the Health Science Library located on the ground floor of the Health Science Building. Student’s of the School are encouraged to become familiar with the Library and its resources to assist with your learning.

Other Student Services

UCD has a number of additional support services outside of the above mentioned to help you on your journey through college. The aim of these services is to help you stay focused on your studies by providing support networks to assist you with the non-academic side of your life. Whether you need help in a social setting, for your health, or because you simply need someone to chat to, the University's support services can help you during your time spent with us.
