CÉIM peer learning for 1st year Geography students

What is CÉIM?

CÉIM is an academic peer learning programme for 1st year Geography students that complements lectures and tutorials. Small groups of students meet weekly for 50 minutes throughout the academic year to learn from each other under the guidance of trained 2nd year and 3rd year Geography student leaders, with input from academic staff.

Benefits of peer learning CÉIM is designed to help you gain a better understanding of your Geography coursework in a relaxed atmosphere, quickly adjust to life at University of Galway, become a successful and independent higher education learner and get to know other students in your course. Research shows that students who attend CÉIM regularly achieve higher grades on average than those who do not.

CÉIM sessions are informal and friendly, yet purposeful, with the emphasis on everyone in the group working together. Attendance is taken at CÉIM sessions. Initiated by University of Galway Students’ Union in 2013, CÉIM is run as a partnership between students, the Discipline of Geography and the Students’ Union.
