All the sessions are organised with the assistance and guidance of the relevant lecturers to ensure that the students are getting the most out of them.

This is an opportunity for all AMS/Maths students to form study groups and have the opportunity to interact with each other in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

The space will be there for you to meet, work and discuss maths together, and also learn from other students.  Its up to you to decide how to use these sessions; e.g. for revision, solving tutorial exercises or just talking about maths with your friends.

A number of 3rd/4th year student peer mentors from AMS and Maths have kindly agreed to be available there every week, in order to give you help and advice in relation to their own knowledge, experience and learning.

Everyone is welcome!
