Some students will, from time to time, encounter problem situations which they are not able to handle very well during their time in UCC. These may be personal, financial or academic difficulties. Should you find yourself in this position, our experience is that the sooner you seek help, the easier it is to ensure a satisfactory resolution, whatever the reason for your problems. There are many people on campus to help you. A wide range of specific supports are provided. Ms. Emily Chambers is also available to speak to you about your concerns and any issues, suggestions or questions which may arise during your time as a student in SEFS at UCC.

Supports for First Year Students
Specific programmes and supports are in place to help students transition into college life during your first year on campus.
Peer Assisted Learning (PAL)
The Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) scheme is a student support scheme for first year students taking Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry in the College of Science, Engineering and Food Science. The PAL scheme provides a student friendly support system for first year students. These PAL sessions help first year students’ understanding of these subjects and prepare them better for assignments and exams and are in addition to lectures, practicals/tutorials. The sessions also help student adjustment in first year by easing the transition from secondary school to university as it provides the opportunity for students to get to know others on their course. PAL sessions are based on existing course materials e.g. lecture notes, handouts, workbooks, textbooks, etc. Undergraduate students from second year onwards (known as PAL Leaders) are recruited and trained to assist first year students. Two PAL Leaders are assigned to groups of about 20 students thus making it easier to discuss topics and ask questions.
