We appreciate that some students may have hectic schedules, long commutes to the university, or may simply be more comfortable having a 1-1 in an online environment.

As such, we also provide online tutorials for students to offer a more flexible way of providing support.

What is Typically Covered in an Online Appointment?

You can reserve a 25-minute time slot online with an experienced tutor. In order to make the most of your time with an SLC Tutor, you will need to state what you would like to cover in that session on the 'description' section of the booking app so that our tutors can prepare in advance of the appointment. Therefore, what is covered in this session is completely up to you!

Please note: If you provide limited/no information, then very often the support tutors will be able to provide will be minimal.

How Do I Book an Online Appointment?

These appointments are not arranged on a virtual 'drop-in' basis. Students need to book or reserve a slot online in advance with a suitable tutor via the button below (UL login required).

Appointments are available up to two weeks in advance of each appointment and students can also cancel appointments up to 24 hours in advance, so it is worth checking back regularly to check the latest availability.

If you can no longer attend your appointment, please make sure to cancel the slot online so it can be made available to others.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can simply request that the tutor contact you before the session in the 'description' box when booking the appointment slot - the tutor will then send you an email so you will have their UL email address.

Online appointments are published two weeks before they take place, so if there is no availability this time, refer to the calendar regularly to see when the next timeslot for your subject is due to occur. If you continue to have issues finding appointments, please contact us at slc@ul.ie.

These appointments can be high in demand, so we always strongly recommend that you cancel your appointment if you can no longer make it so the slot becomes available for others. Go to your booking confirmation email and click on the link to view your booking in the app and manage/delete.

Great service - perfect for exam preparations!
