“Every question and problem I had was answered in the best way possible.”

The Maths Support Centre is located on the first floor of the Main Library on the Edgbaston campus. We offer taught students assistance with mathematics, statistics, and numerical reasoning tests. 

  • Drop-in support is available from Monday 29 January 2024, between 10:00 and 16:00 weekdays. No booking is necessary. Just turn up and our tutors will be happy to help you.
  • Appointments (including online appointments) are available for students who are unable to attend drop-in sessions, and in a few other circumstances. The appointment service is available year-round with the exception of university closed days and bank holidays. Our testimonials include student feedback from a variety of schools, from Biochemistry to Criminology.

For any queries, please contact asc@contacts.bham.ac.uk 

Drop-ins: what to expect

When you enter the Maths Support Centre, a tutor will greet you and ask what you would like help with. You will be directed to the most suitable tutor present. During busy periods, you might be asked to join a queue.

Tutors usually provide one-to-one support, but are also happy to work with small groups. Feel free to drop in with friends if you have a similar query.

Please bring along lecture notes from relevant courses wherever possible, along with original copies of problem sheets or assignments.

You may be referred to an alternate drop-in session or our appointment service if tutors present cannot provide sufficient support.

Appointments: what to expect

Appointments are a conversation, not a lecture. Our advisor will begin by asking about your background in maths and/or statistics before asking about the nature of your query and what you have attempted so far. You can help our advisor prepare by providing details on your booking form.

You should bring along any relevant materials, since we will not be able to access content from your course.

Any resources used during an appointment will be shared with you in a follow-up email. This may also include additional resources or suggestions for further reading.

We have a range of online courses and resources available covering various areas of maths and statistics.

Fair use policy

Our tutors will not provide you with solutions. They will work with you so that you can find answers for yourself. Tutors will aim to help any taught student whose query falls within their area of expertise, but we reserve the right to prioritise those where we believe there is greatest need. 

By using the Centre, you agree to the above.
