The Academic Learning Centre (ALC) was established in 1997 under the departmental title of the Learner Support Unit (LSU). Its aim is to provide academic support to all undergraduate students undertaking a degree course in Mary Immaculate College (MIC). Indeed, its focus is on helping undergraduate students adapt to the academic demands of a third level Institution. This is primarily achieved through the provision of half an hour appointments with peer tutors, whereby any aspect of learning can be discussed.
The ALC is also concerned with encouraging mature learners, whose educational experiences and opportunities in their earlier years may have been limited, to consider returning to education by (a) promoting the various access routes available to them and (b) providing both the Pre-University Programme (PUP) and the Foundation Certificate to mature learners considering embarking on third level education. These programmes are delivered on a part-time basis to facilitate those who wish to sample university-level education but who are in employment, and/or have families and other care responsibilities.
