Reaching Out on Reading Week
You’re now half way through the first trimester and it’s the perfect time to catch your breath and have a think about how things are going for you so far.
Reading week gives you some space to:
- Catch up on your readings
- Get a headstart on any assignments
- Get familiar with the many academic and non-academic supports that are available in UCD

It’s the perfect time to go along to a workshop on essay writing:
‘Perfect your essay writing, and get some practical tips for writing in University’
This short workshop will take place via Zoom on Tuesday 26th October, 2pm-2.45pm.
There is no need to make an appointment, just call by with your query and they are happy to help.
Clubs and Societies
The weeks between Orientation and Reading Week are spent getting to know the University, your subjects, your classmates, finding information about your assignments, lectures and tutorials. During Reading Week you may have a little more time to step back and reflect on your first few weeks in University. It can be an opportunity to catch up if you are behind on readings and for you to get on top of your assignments. It is a time for you to assess how the first half of trimester has gone, and to make the most of the supports that are on campus to prepare you for end of trimester. University supports are available for you to utilise during Reading Week, and throughout your journey at UCD so try to make the most of them!
