Paul Hannigan (pictured above), President of LYIT commented: “We are delighted to offer this event virtually. This event gives students an insight to college life and we hope that our virtual video tours and live webinars during the event provide students with information that will guide them on their journey to third level”.
The event commences at 10am Thursday, 19 November. Students can take a video tour of both the Letterkenny and Killybegs campuses. There will be a live chat option on the day where students can have their queries answered by academic and student support staff. The Heads of the Departments and academic staff at LYIT have also prepared informative videos outlining their programme and study options.
Fiona Kelly, LYIT Schools Engagement Officer is delighted to welcome prospective students to this event: “It has been a tough time for students and we recognise that at LYIT. It’s unfortunate that students, parents and teachers cannot visit our campuses right now, but we are sure that the virtual platform will showcase LYIT’s CAO programmes, our student life and our facilities in the most vibrant way. We have put lots of planning and organisation into this event and we hope that prospective students, parents and teachers find this event informative and interactive.”
Everyone is welcome to attend this virtual event. Whether you are a secondary school student, a parent/guardian, a mature student, an early school leaver or teacher, the LYIT staff will be on hand to help you.
Perhaps you would like to further your career with a postgraduate programme or perhaps the current pandemic has resulted in unemployment. At LYIT, there really is something for everyone so login on the day and explore your options.
