Welcome to the digital home of the UCC Skills Centre, a new and exciting student support development 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 your study skills, 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 your essential study skills. We offer a free and friendly place for all UCC students to come and improve their study skills.
Peer tutors and Staff members will facilitate group sessions, one to one appointments and drop in sessions. Core learning will be strengthened through the delivery of study strategies, providing the scaffolding and building blocks for independent and critical thinking.
We have a wide range of workshops available throughout the 2017-2018 academic year, from early transition to definite progression in University life.
