Maths Support Centre

MSC Ident

Mathematics and statistics are relevant to many discipline areas, but many students experience difficulties with them as they begin their university studies. We offer additional help to undergraduate students from all disciplines, in addition to support provided by your undergraduate programme.  Drop-in support is aimed at foundation and first-year undergraduate students from all disciplines and programmes of study within the University, and at undergraduates from other year groups identified as having particular difficulties with basic mathematical and statistical techniques.

Fair Use Policy

Due to increased demand, we have introduced a Fair Use Policy (PDF 207KB). Please take note of this before attending. 

Opening Times

The Mathematics Support Centre is open on weekdays from 10.00-16.00 Monday to Friday during term time. The Maths support centre is currently closed for the Easter break and will reopen for revision support after the break. 

We are located on the first floor of the Main Library, next to the Academic Skills Centre.
