Classes & Timetables
The Maths Support Service provides a number additional classes and general drop-in sessions that are available to all students throughout teaching weeks. Full details on all the sessions for the current semester are included below. If you require any additional information please do not hesitate to contact us.
General drop-in sessions
These are not formal lectures! The drop-in classes are relaxed and informal sessions, where you can bring along all your mathematical and statistical problems, no matter how small, and discuss them with a tutor. This can be done on a one-to-one basis or in a small group (typically 2-5 students). The tutor may also be able to provide you with supplementary materials to help reinforce your understanding of the topic beyond the session. There is no need to book in advance, all queries are dealt with on a first come, first serve basis.

Spring Examination Period: (May 11th - June 5th)

Statistics Support will be available during the Wednesday session.
Appointments can be arranged on a one-to-one basis or for small groups (typically 2-5 students). Each appointment lasts approximately 30 minutes. Typically, appointments are arranged on the following basis:
- The query relates to detailed research or project work not suitable for discussion in a drop-in session.
- Or, the student is unable to attend any of the drop-in sessions during the week.
- Or, the student would like to discuss in private how the service might be utilised to effectively support their needs.
NOTE: Appointments are dependent upon the availability of a suitable tutor. Therefore, enquiries should be made well in advance of any deadlines to avoid disappointment. To arrange an appointment please email firstname.lastname@example.org including full details of your query.
Subject Specific drop-in sessions
The Maths Support Service is available to individual schools/departments to organise subject specific drop-in sessions. Typically these sessions are similar to the general drop-ins and have the added benefit of having a tutor available who is familiar with the mathematical context of that particular subject area. If you think that your School would benefit from such a session, please contact the Maths Support Coordinator via the above email address.
