CIT’s International Student Society has won national awards over the last number of years for the ‘Best Society’ in Ireland.
CIT’s international students will host a Cultural Exhibition on the Bishopstown Campus from 12pm to 2pm to provide general information on their countries of origin and, where fellow CIT students and staff are invited to engage and learn about musical, culinary and social aspects of their cultures. An Erasmus Information Stand will also be onsite, where CIT students who have spent a semester abroad on Erasmus will share their experience. The Exhibition will also feature Treasures of Cork & CIT by Johnny Hanrahan. During the day, international students will get the opportunity to learn about and try out Gaelic Games, during Hurling and Gaelic Football Taster sessions; Irish Music and Dance, during a Ceili; visit the current exhibition of fine art textiles made through an artistic exchange project between CCAD & Kaunas Art Institute: Things/Daiktai at Wandesford Quay Gallery and have an “out of this world” experience at the CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory to explore space, astronomy and the origins of life while there.
