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!

About

Exam Bootcamp is a series of live webinars, pre-recorded workshops and online resources developed by DCU Student Support & Development. The team includes expert Life Coaches, Occupational Therapists and Psychologists. We provide different ways of engaging with the content, so you can set your own pace and focus on what's most relevant to you. You can access our online resouces at any time, and come to any or all of the live webinars 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."
