What We Do
The Learning Support Unit (LSU) offers the following services:
One-to-one academic support and tutoring. Students are welcome to call to the LSU located in G33A for one-to-one advice on aspects of learning at third level. The LSU team is available to advise on essay writing (independent and confidential advice is given on how to improve the structure and writing style of essays and essay planning), study skills, time management, exam techniques.
The Unit offers subject specific support in areas of critical need, namely Gaeilge and Mathematics.
- Pre-exam planning. The LSU offers help in planning individual study programmes, especially in the lead up to exams. This helps students make the most of their time and assist in future study planning.
- The Learner Support Unit Handbook. This comprehensive handbook is available here. It includes chapters on study skills, academic reading, time-management, structuring essays, referencing academic essays (Harvard and Footnoting systems) and preparing for exams.
