The University of Limerick has five Learning Centres specific to different disciplines which are available for students to access.
Science Learning Centre
The Science Learning Centre provides support to UL students whose degree includes a science or engineering component. We also work with staff in science and engineering disciplines to develop transformative pedagogies for STEM disciplines in higher education.
Mathematics Learning Centre
All UL students studying courses that have a mathematics or statistics module can avail of the Mathematics Learning Centre's (MLC) services free of charge.
The Mathematics Learning Centre provides maths support services for students. These services will all take place online in Spring 2021 unless otherwise specified. A video detailing how to access our online services is given below.
Information and Communications Technologies Learning Centre
The ICT Learning Centre aims to support and promote active learning among the students of ICT related programmes in UL, via the use of proven learner support approaches, tutoring innovation, research and evaluation, with the goal of developing learners who are confident and effective ICT practitioners.
Regional Writing Centre
The Writing Centre at UL offers a free and friendly place for all students (undergraduate and postgraduate) to come and address any aspect of their writing. This resource is dedicated to helping students develop strategies to become more confident, critical and autonomous writers.
The Writing Centre practices a non-invasive, inductive approach to writing development, utilising peer-tutors and experts that work with both undergraduate students, postgraduate students and staff respectively to identify their writing practices in order to assess and improve strategic effectiveness.
The RWC also offers workshops, facilitates writers' groups and provides a space for writers who just want a quiet place to write. The RWC website provides online links to writing resources, as well as access to video recordings of our How I Write, Ireland interviews, where prolific writers talk about their own process, their strategies and how they view their particular writing situations.
Peer Supported Learning Centre (PSLC) for Electronic and Computer Engineering
The Regional PSLC is a cross-institutional centre for promoting effective, learner focused Peer Supported learning systems by building on the experience and expertise in Peer Supported learning in all Shannon Consortium partner institutions, particularly that related to UL's highly successful academic enrichment programme known as Peer Supported Learning Groups (PSLG).
The centre has been set up as a learning resource for all students in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering (ECE). It is located in room C2061 of the main building.
