About SUMS

Welcome to the homepage of SUMS the mathematics drop-in support centre at NUI Galway. SUMS offers mathematics support to students across all colleges and courses as well as to students engaged in Access/Foundation courses.

How does SUMS work?

SUMS opens from 2pm to 5pm, Monday to Friday, during the academic year. You can find more information including tutors on duty etc. on the Timetable page. Please prepare for your visit as much as possible. Bring along all relevant course materials and try to identify a specific area of difficulty.

SUMS for Access/Foundation

Friday afternoons are specially dedicated to students taking Access/Foundation courses and Mature Students. If you are one of these students you are of course free to attend on any of our opening days but please be aware that the centre can be extremely busy and that you will receive more time with a tutor on Friday afternoons.
