MTU Open Evenings are an ideal opportunity for prospective students and their parents/guardians, supporters and guidance counsellors to explore the wide range of courses and excellent facilities on offer.
MTU offers an extensive range of CAO courses. It is remarkably successful in producing award winners at national and European levels across its major disciplinary areas. In addition, MTU wins multimillion-euro research funding on an annual basis. Its connections with industry are exceptionally strong and heavily influence MTU course design and delivery. Work placement features strongly and graduate employment rates are very strong. During their studies, MTU students get the opportunity to gain skills for employment or to start their own businesses. The combination of all of these factors provides MTU students with major advantages.
These events will be helpful to students who have applied for MTU courses on their CAO application form and also to students who may be contemplating the “Change of Mind” option.
The main feature of MTU Open Evenings will be a Careers Exhibition hosted in the Nexus Student Centre on MTU’s Bishopstown Campus. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to meet with lecturers and students, who will be delighted to answer their queries. In addition, current students will be on hand to recount their personal experiences of MTU and to offer advice. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to see the extensive facilities available in MTU as well as exploring extra-curricular activities. Organised tours of the MTU Bishopstown Campus will be provided and participants will be briefed in relation to student grants and accommodation, while also learning about student life at MTU. In addition, information on scholarships and the numerous student support services will be provided.
