Week 5 – Learner Support Centres

As with every week, the HUB is open 08:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday to answer any questions you might have. You can get us online too, but the theme of this week is “Learner Support Centres” and for this week only we are holding workshops and a massive competition.


FREE Workshops … With Freebies

Academic Writing Worshop, Graduate Attributes Hub

Tuesday and Wednesday from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Writing at university can be very different to the type of writing you did at school or in the workplace, this workshop has a massive amount of advice to offer new first year students.

Here is how to get to the workshop starting at our old friend Brown Thomas.

And because we are sound, everyone that attends the workshop will get a gorgeous First Seven Weeks pocket calculator/sticky note wallet.



Succeeding in Science and Mathematics, Science Learning Centre (BO-021a)

Wednesday 1:00 p.m. – 1:50 p.m.

It’s a big step from science and maths at school to science and maths in University. Often you end up meeting aspects of these subjects in first year that are totally new to you. Even if you have already studied maths and the sciences at Leaving Cert, you might find the experience of learning them through lectures, labs and tutorials very different to how you are used to being taught in secondary school.
This workshop will look at:
 Learning from lectures
 Getting prepared for lab work and tutorials
 Working in groups
 Making the most of all the learner supports
 Most importantly: maintaining a love of science and mathematics!

And because we are sound everyone that attends the workshop gets a free First Seven Weeks pocket calculator with sticky notes.
