What the students say

"I am in my final year of Electrical Engineering and I have been using the support centre for Maths since I began my course. The lecturers are excellent to deal with, very friendly and open. I would happily recommend everyone to avail of the dfferent support available since my experience using the Maths support has been so beneficial to me".

- Patrick Daly

"I attended the ALC for Physics support and I have no doubt that the extra tuition helped me to pass my first year exams. The timetable suited my schedule, so I attended regularly. The ALC also facilitated in re-scheduling an important assessment, allowing me to sit the exam there under supervision. I find it a fantastic student facility and I will continue to use the ALC throughout my time in C.I.T.".

- Rachel Crowley

"I have been attending the ALC learning supports since 2008. I have attended four different subjects; Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Electronics. In first year I needed to gain a better understanding of various problems in Maths, Physics and Electronics, since I had not been in education for a number of years. Looking back there were times when I could not understand a lot of the problems in class, and so the ALC learning support filled the gaps. The ALC has also furthered my understanding and education greatly. I attend every year; it certainly makes the extra difference to pass my assessments and exams."

-Dan McSweeney

"Only for the ALC, I wouldn’t get through college. I attend for Maths and Mechanics every week. I expected to fail Mechanics, but the exam went surprisingly well, I might actually pass, otherwise I'll see you at the Summer Programme!"

- Ewart Coghlan

"The ALC is a fantastic student support, we use the rooms regularly we find it good to study and prepare together as a group and we bounce off each other to summarise notes and exam questions. We used the Chemistry session also last Semester and it was a huge support"
