Exam Bootcamp

Are you worried about upcoming exams? Not too sure where to start with your study or how to manage stress in the exam build-up? Maybe it's time to attend Exam Bootcamp!


Exam Bootcamp is a series of workshops run by DCU Student Support & Development over the course of a week during the exam study period. The sessions are provided by expert Life Coaches, Occupational Therapists and Psychologists from the Student Support & Development team. You can come to any or all of the workshops as you see fit!


What students say

  • "I found each class 100% helpful. My study skill and time management has improved immensely. I have learnt to relax and calm myself when I feel tensed up. Before I came here I was demotivated. But now I know that I can and I will conquer these exams."
  • "There are multiple problems that students can face and the workshops cover most if not all of them and the advisors were always open for a talk if you want to discuss a point further."
