Book Your Skills Session

Welcome to the UCC Skills Centre Booking System. From this page, you will be able to

  • Reserve your one to one slot.

Throughout the academic year, we have a variety of workshops and sessions that are available to help you traverse university life. Firstly, please take a few minutes to register your interest in the Skill Centre sessions. This will ensure that you are first to receive information on new sessions as they become available. Find out more about the Transition Skills Programme which has been designed to run over the first few weeks of each semester. Although this programme is especially beneficial for new students, we look forward to welcoming all new and returning students to the Skills Centre in Q-1, Boole Library.
