Academic Support

Know when to ask for help! Particularly at the beginning of your course, you may struggle with one or more of your subjects as you adjust to academic life in a new college in a new country. 

It is okay to ask for help and much better if you ask for help early in your course so we have time to help you along with your studies. In contrast to what you may be used to, it is your responsibility to seek assistance - nobody will come looking for you if you haven't asked for help. There are well established support services in the National College of Ireland so if you need any assistance with your studies, please contact us.

Library Help Centre

The aim of the Library Help Centre is to help you in researching, structuring and referencing your assignments. We are here to offer guidance to all students and can also help international students adapt their skills to the different expectations of studying in Ireland. 

If you wish to make an appointment you can email us at or give us a call on (01) 4498645; if you just have a quick query, feel free to drop in.

Student Support

Student Support also provide academic assistance throughout the year - you can attend any of the classes they run throughout the year or contact them for assistance,, tel:(01) 4498624.
