The Instagram Live Q&A sessions began on Monday 27th April 2020. The live sessions cover areas such as Business, Engineering, Science, Humanities, Computer Science, Art, Music & Maritime. These sessions will be particularly beneficial for students availing of the CAO Change of Mind facility which opened on 5th May.


Each session lasts 30 minutes and is based on a particular department’s courses and disciplinary area, covering topics such as course content, work placement and future job prospects. Sessions for CIT support services such as Access & Disabilities, Mature Students and HEAR/DARE programmes will also be organised. A timetable of the virtual Q & A events is available below.


According to CIT’s Vice President for External Affairs, Michael Loftus, “CIT is open for business. While a number of restrictions are in place due to COVID-19, we have moved rapidly to new ways of working online with our students, staff, industry stakeholders and the communities we serve. We are now providing opportunities for second-level school students and their supporters to connect with us using Instagram Live to check course options and have their queries answered. Our team will be delighted to respond to all.”
