About Us


The Science Learning Centre aims primarily to support undergraduate students taking first year and some second year modules, although help is given whenever possible to other years also.


The Drop-in Service

Students can visit the Drop-in Centre without appointment or cost. Tutors who are specialists in the main science and engineering subjects, i.e., chemistry, physics, biology, engineering science are present to address any queries that students may have regarding science-based modules. The Drop-in service does not consist of formal tutorials or classes; rather students bring any questions they have regarding course materials, laboratory report analysis, etc. The tutors are there to assist students in developing their understanding of the basic science and engineering concepts. Students can come individually or in groups.

Support Tutorials

Support tutorials can be arranged by the Science Learning Centre to supplement timetabled module lectures and tutorials. Course material is revisited in the support tutorials, according to the areas that student are finding difficult.

Drop-in Provision for Students Taking Repeat Examinations 

This is provided in the summer months prior to the Autumn repeat examinations.

Details of our supports will be emailed to students. Please email slc@ul.ie with specific requests.
