No need to book a place - just choose from one of the times specified and turn up, thanks.  

We will also use this as opportunity to have a chat and enjoy some holiday cheer and sweet treats as we approach the end of your first semester. Also, any student who attends one the sessions will be entered in a draw for some super prizes, including TU Dublin merchandise like pens, notepads etc   

We look forward to seeing you then!
