Selecting the course that best matches their interests can be a daunting experience for students. In order to provide guidance to everyone intending to apply for admission through the CAO process in 2021, Cork Institute of Technology has created the Open Fortnight initiative to help ensure that students, as well as their supporters, teachers and guidance counsellors, have the opportunity to explore options in a friendly environment.

 

This programme of live, online events, will provide students and their supporters with the opportunity to pose questions to staff members while also hearing from current students and recent graduates who will be on hand to talk about their personal experiences and offer advice about student life. The Open Fortnight will run from Monday 16th November 2020 to Thursday 26th November 2020.
