Online Grinds Service Launched

Thanks to our new online grinds service, the days of scanning noticeboards in the hope of finding a tutor are gone. It has never been easier to find or give grinds in UCC.

The service is available on www.grindscentre.com/ucc, where both students and tutors can sign up free of charge to view the different areas in which grinds are available. Tutors can then set their own rate per grind. Students can also communicate with tutors through the website, meaning no phone numbers or personal details have to be shared.

The joint venture between UCC Students’ Union and GrindsCentre.com, a Cork start-up, provides an online platform that allows students to easily find the best tutors for their subject.

As part of the deal, tutors who are registered with a UCC e-mail address will have a separate symbol on the website. This means that students can identify tutors who study or have studied in UCC and who might have more knowledge of their individual courses.
