College Awareness Week 2018


Could college be an option for you as a mature student?

The answer is YES… There are many different routes into third level and there are many things to consider when thinking of progressing through, or returning to education. Finding a course that is right for you is the first challenge. During College Awareness week we have a number of different speakers from third level institutions who will give you an overview of the courses offered, the application processes, and what you can expect from each different college or university once you are there. We also have an information session on grants and allowances for education as finance can be a barrier for most when thinking of going to college.

These information sessions are open to all, no need to be a student of our centre to attend.
