CAO Applicant Information Evening
Cork Institute of Technology is hosting a CAO Applicant Information Evening on its Bishopstown campus on Tuesday 12th April 2016. The event, hosted by CIT’s Marketing Unit, is targeted at Leaving Certificate students who have applied for courses at CIT in their 2016 CAO application, and also students who may be contemplating “Change of Mind” options. The event, which is free and open to all, runs from 6pm - 8pm in the Nexus Hall, Student Centre CIT Bishopstown Campus.
Linda McCarthy, now a first year student in CIT, said that she found last year’s event to be invaluable. “I went along with my Mother and by the end of the evening I had a much clearer idea of the path I wanted to take. I’m very happy with the course I’m now studying.”
Students have an opportunity to learn more about different courses, take a tour of the campus and facilities, obtain information on accommodation and learn about student life at CIT. They will also receive information on grants and CIT’s sports scholarships, and find out about the numerous support services.
In addition to the information stands, there will be various information sessions on CIT's First Year Orientation Programme, Grants, applying as a mature student and students with disabilities.
Communications and Marketing Officer for CIT, Mervyn O’Mahony said: “Choosing the right college course is a crucial decision for students so it’s very important to have the right information to hand when making it. That’s why an evening like this is so very important – people can have a look at the campus, meet CIT staff, and ask questions that can help in making the right CAO choices”.
The evening is free and open to students, parents and teachers.
