Learning Development

The Learning Support Service (LSS) welcomes  all IADT students who  would like to  develop their learning skills and reach their academic potential.  

Students can avail of seminars, workshops, small groupwork and one to one tutorials on a range of learning skills including:

  • Academic Writing
  • Research and Reading Strategies
  • Note taking/making
  • Time Management and Organisation Skills 
  • Exam Techniques and Revision Planning

Our seminars, workshops and one to one sessions are available to all IADT students. Our tutors work with students to help them identify how they can learn more effectively and improve their performance in exams, project work and continuous assessments.


Learning Support

We also support students whose learning is impacted by a specific learning difficulty, including:

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyscalculia 
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivty Disorder 
  • Developmental Co-ordination Disorder
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder

We provide Needs Assessments to identify which supports are most effective for each student and their programme of study. Supports may include one to one tutoring tailored to individual needs, arrangements for exam accommodations, reasonable accommodations  and help incorporating assistive technology into student learning.
