Welcome to the digital home of the UCC Skills Centre, an exciting student service for all UCC students. Our priority is you, the UCC student. The Skills Centre provides a dedicated, responsive and active learning space for the enhancement of study skills and is committed to further contributing to a positive and successful student experience here in UCC.
The Skills Centre enhances the student experience through the provision of customised workshops and sessions. These sessions will help develop and enhance students essential study skills. We offer a free and friendly place for all UCC students to come and improve their study skills, writing technique and presentation skills.
Peer tutors and staff members facilitate group sessions, one to one appointments and drop-in sessions. Core learning is strengthened through the delivery of study strategies, providing the scaffolding and building blocks for independent and critical thinking. You might find that you are a little lost and would like an opportunity for some guidance. You can book an advisor appointment each week and they will help you to identify the session you need to #unlockYOURpotential.
We have a wide range of workshops available throughout the academic year, from early transition to definite progression in University life.
Connect with the Skills Centre anytime, either by booking an appointment, dropping us an email, popping by, or you can contact us by phone. Secure your seat in a skills session, book an advisor appointment, and reserve your one to one slot.
