Welcome to the School of Science and Computing Student Support Service.
This is a free service, open to all first-year students, and runs in parallel with the pre-existing Computing and Mathematics Centre.
This support service has been established as we recognise that first year can be difficult for many students, and we would like to support students who are struggling with course work and deadlines in any way that we can:
One-to-one (or few-to-one, if you bring a friend) help on topics of your choice.
Short review sessions, covering specific problem areas – these include covering concepts/techniques that typically might have been covered during 2nd level, but you are a bit rusty on.
- Advice on points of contacts to avail of other SETU Waterford services for non-academic issues.
We work with the existing Computing and Mathematics Centre (FTG25), extending its support to Chemistry, Physics and Biology.
We provide support to any first year Science, Computing or Mathematics student in the School of Science that needs it. We can work on a one-to-one basis: the student asks the question and we help to find the answer. Or, students can come as a small group and we can work together through the questions. We are available to help you with any Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computing or Maths (or other) aspect of your course. We can explain your notes and work through some examples with you. We will work at your pace and can schedule regular support sessions for you if required. We can schedule the support in person or via Teams/Zoom, during the college day/evening, whenever suits best.
It can be extremely daunting to ask for help, we understand this, so you can send any questions that you may have to [email protected] and we will answer them in as much detail as we can.
Note: Students can email the School of Science Support [email protected] at any time and tutors will respond to arrange support as soon as possible.
