Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, and in line with the suspension of non-essential, face-to-face university teaching, the Maths Gym will operate virtually until further notice!

We still have drop-in sessions and appointments available and we are introducing Workshops for 2020/2021 – check out the details below!

Drop-in sessions (Edinburgh) will start in week 2 (w/c 18/01/2021).

Drop-in Sessions

Drop-in sessions are open, supported study sessions where you can ‘drop-in’ with your questions. There is no need to book, simply turn up and a tutor will be on hand to help you. There is no limit to the number of sessions you can attend or how long you stay! See the campus information below for current times and how to attend online.


Appointments are perfect for individuals or small groups (2-3 students) who require a bit more time with a tutor or who have a more in depth question. These are available to all and are currently available, virtually, via Microsoft Teams. To book an appointment, please visit our booking page to find an available slot.


The Maths Gym workshops are an opportunity to have guided study sessions with your peers and a Maths Gym tutor. There will be ample worked and practice examples to demonstrate the techniques discussed.

These are designed as revision sessions and are not intended to introduce you to new topics; they can be very useful to refresh your knowledge on areas of maths and stats which you need to apply to your current courses.

Workshop details, including descriptions of what is currently available, a timetable and booking details, can be found here.


We have a Maths Gym vision page, which is primarily a participation space. The Collaborate Ultra facility within our course page is used for virtual Workshops and Drop-in sessions.

To access our Vision page you must self-enroll on the Maths Gym ‘course’ page, titled: V11MA Maths Gym. It can be accessed here – just click on the ‘Enroll’ button.

Discussion Board

We have a discussion board on Vision to answer quick queries and for you to discuss maths and stats problems with your colleagues – it will be checked by staff daily (Mon-Fri) but if you know the answer to a query, get involved and help each other out 🙂
