Students Staff

Maths support

We offer maths support, helping you with:

  • maths or statistics problems relating to your course (though we can't answer your homework questions for you!)
  • general numeracy and problem-solving skills to improve your employability

We're open to all students and staff, as well as members of the public in the local area.

Online resources

1:1 and group help

Our maths support is open during term-time. It's run jointly by the Talent Development Centre and Department of Mathematical Sciences. You can get help from our trained advisers, who are all students from the maths department.

We have a range of resources available including practice worksheets and online numeracy tests. We're happy to help on a 1:1 or small group basis. We won't solve problems for you. The aim is to give you an opportunity to chat through a problem and to help you see how to solve it yourself.

All your questions and problems will remain confidential.

Location and opening times (Colchester Campus)

We're based on the ground floor of the Silberrad Student Centre and our help desk opening times are:

  • Monday - Friday, 10am - 5pm
