About the ALC
The Academic Learning Centre (based in D259) allows students to seek out extra help and support for particular modules and topics in a casual relaxed learning environment, where students feel comfortable working away at their own pace. Students are encouraged to focus on specific learning problems, while the support lecturers intervene in a natural way to fill the learning gaps and follow the student’s specific learning needs.
Academic subject support sessions are run on a continuous weekly basis throughout the academic year. Students drop-in as and when they need to. All of the subject support sessions delivered by the Academic Learning Centre are free of charge and open to all CIT students taking the subject as part of their course. Students attend from a broad spectrum of disciplines; Science, Engineering, Computing, Business, and Building & Architecture.
The ALC current academic subject support provision includes the following subjects; Mathematics and Statistics, Physics, Programming, Networking, Electronics, Economics, Chemistry, Financial Accounting, Management Accounting, Mechanics, and Thermofluids
Many of the regular attendees have built up good communication with the lecturers resulting in increased confidence facing assessments and exams.
