If the above two Centres cannot offer you the academic assistance you need, you can submit a request form for free grinds from a Tutor employed by the TU Dublin Access Service (City Campus). To do this, please follow the instructions below. Classes will commence after this:


  • Please note these grinds are only for Access students
  • Complete one grinds request form for each subject you are seeking assistance with
  • We do not offer grinds in Maths during term time as the Maths Learning centre is a resource for assistance with grinds.
  • Please note that we cannot guarantee Tutors are available in all subjects you request.
  • If a Tutor is available in a subject you request, this Tutor will contact you directly via email to arrange weekly small group times to meet
  • You are expected to attend grinds sessions you request once a week at the day and time you agree with your Tutor.
  • Maximum of 8 hours per subject are available to each Access Student
  • Please note that these weekly grinds sessions are NOT an additional lecture, but rather an opportunity for you to bring lecture notes about things you do not understand to a qualified Tutor.  This person will help you better understand
  • You must sign in at each session.
