Student Plus - Academic Support Classes for First Year Students

It is not uncommon to feel a little daunted by the thought of studying at university, as making the move to higher education will be a major step in your life. Although you may already feel prepared to complete many of the academic tasks in your first year, there may be some tasks that will be entirely new to you; activities such as referencing, finding and using academic sources to inform your assignments, planning your time to study independently, or going to lectures and tutorials.
 
Student Plus can provide you with exactly the type of skills, useful information, support and advice that will help you to get started, to feel more confident and ready to succeed in your first year at Maynooth University, and your whole journey as a student and beyond.
 
What is Student Plus?
 
Student Plus is a free, academic skills course for first year students, running in Semester 1. There are 6 classes, (1 class per week) and each is designed to help you develop the skills that will enable you to learn more effectively during your time here at Maynooth University and for your future lifelong learning and career.  It is also a way to get to meet other students from different first year courses.
 
At the end, provided you have attended at least 80% of the classes, you will receive a certificate.
