NCI offers a number of academic support services to students. Your Lecturers, Programme Co-ordinators, and Programme Directors are here to help. Please do not hesitate to reach out to them for guidance and support throughout your academic journey. If you need to speak with them, you can reach out through Microsoft Teams or by email during office hours and they can schedule a one-to-one meeting with you at a suitable time online or in-person.


We also hold a range of further academic supports: 

Getting to Grips

The Learning Support Service offers a “Getting to Grips” drop-in service where you can discuss your academic concerns around writing, referencing, note-taking, researching, exam-revision and general focus on academic advancement. You can speak one to one with a tutor through Teams. The link to these sessions can be found on the Student Support Moodle page. Getting to Grips services are available Mondays 4-7pm, Tuesdays 4-7pm and Wednesdays 1-3pm.


Mathematics Support Service

The Mathematics Support Service offers programme workshops on quantitative methods, mathematics and research methods. Workshops usually run over the five weeks before the examination start dates or you can book an appointment with the Mathematics Development & Support Officer. You can take a look at this service at the Mathematics Development and Support Home.


Computing Support

If you are a computing student there are lots of tailored supports for you including support classes and one to one support sessions. To find out more you can check out the Computing Support Moodle page or you can email computingsupport@ncirl.ie


Library Help Centre

The Library Help Centre also offers personalised academic support to students. They are located on the fifth floor of the Spencer Dock building, or you can contact them directly by emailing libraryhelpcentre@ncirl.ie or booking an appointment online at the Library Academic Support Centre.
