University Tutor - Department of Mathematics and Statistics
The University has run a Certificate in Science programme for over a decade. This one-year programme has enabled prospective students that lack the necessary school-level background to qualify for entry to degree programmes in Science. A new Turn To Teaching initiative involves, in particular, a similar one-year programme in preparation for Science Education degrees.
Maynooth University Mathematics Support Centre
The Mathematics Support Centre (MSC) first opened in October 2007. Since then, it has grown significantly. The main term time service that the MSC provides is a drop-in centre for undergraduate students who need assistance with any aspects of mathematics or mathematics related subjects. The MSC’s services also include on demand workshops, the provision of online supports as well as drop-in for second level students. Its supports are available to all Maynooth University undergraduate students. For further information see: http://supportcentre.maths.nuim.ie/services.
The University Tutor plays an important role in the delivery of many of the University’s academic programmes and is appointed for the primary purpose of contributing to teaching within a clear and established teaching programme by providing tuition and/or demonstrations to groups of, usually undergraduate students, in specific aspects of the programme. The University Tutor assists and supports students to further develop their understanding of key course topics and to draw out key learning points from course materials.
